How to Join
It’s easy to become a regular member of the WCGTC. Membership is $75 a year and you can sign-up using the on-line membership form which accepts VISA, MasterCard, and DISCOVER payment. For other forms of payment such as check or wire transfer, contact Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org. Two-year memberships receive a $10 discount.
To support the ongoing operations of the WCGTC, we offer additional levels of contribution- Silver, Gold, and Platinum memberships. Fees in the Silver, Gold, or Platinum categories have an additional advantage in that 10% of their value is credited to the World Council Scholarship Fund which supports bringing those who could otherwise not afford it to the World Conference.
Graduate Students enrolled in a program of graduate studies related to gifted education and not employed full-time can apply for a reduced membership of $50 per year. A graduate supervisor must approve your application.
