Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Chicago Women in Planning and Development. On May 1, 2015, WP+D increased prices for each membership level. New prices are shown below.
Prior to this increase, WP+D had not increased its dues at any level in more than 15 years. And while the reasons for this current increase are many, the ones we feel are most important are:
Surveys of WP+D members have consistently shown the desire for more and higher quality programming.
As WP+D has offered more programming with added amenities, we’ve seen consistently high turnout for WP+D events both large and small.
Planning and holding all WP+D programs has led to higher overhead costs for the organization as our turnout per event increases.
In order to best position WP+D for future financial health in light of higher costs, we feel it’s necessary to increase pricing across all membership levels now.
