Membership Application

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.

The Board invites you to contact us with questions about this increase. You can reach all current Board members with comments or any general questions at


  1. STUDENT MEMBER ($30) – For current students and recent graduates (3 mos.) seeking employment. WP+D offers an introduction to a wide network of women outside of the academic environment. In your fellow members, you will find potential mentors, friends, and perhaps a future employer.
  2. PROFESSIONAL MEMBER ($75) – For young professionals and non-profit/public sector professionals. WP+D offers targeted career advancement opportunities and skills training in a more social setting than other organizations.
  3. SUSTAINING PROFESSIONAL MEMBER ($125) – For established professionals and women who are able to subsidize the student membership rate. WP+D offers an opportunity to mentor energetic young women in your field; or if you have limited availability, act as an advisor to a committee and attend annual events such as the Holiday Party or Membership Appreciation Picnic to network with your peers.
  4. COMPANY PACKAGE ($350) - For five women from the same company looking to enjoy the benefits of joining Women in Planning and Development at a discounted rate. Additional members from the same company can be added for $70 per member.
