|Types & Benefits of Membership|
There are six classes of membership in the Association: Regular, Affiliate, Student, New Professional, Retiree and Member Emeritus. With the exception of the Student, New Professional, Retiree and Member Emeritus membership classifications, membership is granted to organizations, not individuals.
The membership remains with the organization, only transferable to another person within the same organization during a given membership year. MPACE member organizations get as many "member rates" to conference and regional events as they have active Regular members - the names do not need to match.
REGULAR MEMBERSHIP - $150
Regular Member – College
Regular Member – Employer
Regular member representatives’ job functions must include recruitment, career planning and placement, or training of college students and graduates exclusively for their organizations.
AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP - $150
Affiliate membership is available to organizations that provide support services to the recruitment and/or career planning and placement function and who do not satisfy the criteria for Regular membership.
Affiliate members may elect to have several representatives as long as the representatives provide support services to the recruitment/placement function.
