FY 2024 Membership Rates

Section Members,

Starting January 1, 2024, the Inland Empire Section Rates will be updated to the following:

  • $30/year for membership ($2.50/month)
  • $5/year for students ($0.50/month)
  • $12/year for voluntary ($1.00/month)
  • $0/year for Life Members (Free!)

ASCE National is offering the option for membership to be paid lump sum or by monthly payment.  ASCE prorates new and reinstated members that join after January 31 to ensure they only pay for service received (renewing members pay full price). New or reinstated members who join after January 31 will pay the prorated fee, which will calculate to 1/12th of the dues price times the number of remaining months in the year. If the dues price is $30/year, a member who joins in February will pay $27.50 for the rest of the year.

Please visit www.asce.org for additional information for renewing your membership for 2024.
