We have some exciting news about changes coming to our annual CSVANW Membership Program effective March 1, 2019. After careful evaluation, and our board of director’s approval, the Coalition has restructured membership into four tier levels to better support the growing needs of our members and the communities you serve. These new tiers are intended to ensure the maximum level of tailored training, education, technical assistance and community support from our coordinators to you.
In an ongoing effort to create a culture of transparency when considering dues increases, CSVANW evaluated funds allocated to our trusted community service providers. In 2018 CSVANW awarded nearly $18,000 in scholarships, sponsorships, and travel costs, with 70% earmarked for our members, to ensure our support of your important work. This included travel support for members for both state and national conferences and trainings.
Tribal Level- $500 Annual Due
This tier is inclusive of all tribal departments within one of the 24 nations, pueblos, and tribes located in the CSVANW regional service area. Tribal Membership is best suited for multiple programs within a tribal community that are in need of CSVANW services, training, and support.
Organizational Level-$250 Annual Due
This tier is inclusive of individual agencies, organizations and programs within the CSVANW service area. Organizational Membership is best suited for single departments within a tribe or stand-alone organizations, agencies and programs who seek to build the internal capacity of employees, interns, and volunteers in need of CSVANW services, training and support.
Advocate Level- $75 Annual Due
This tier is inclusive of individual advocates within the movement to end violence who require ongoing support around technical assistance, trainings, and workshops. Advocate level membership is best suited for individual advocates who have completed a 40-Hour Advocacy training and are in need of ongoing professional development.
CSVANW Relative Level- $50 Annual Due
This tier is inclusive of individuals who are invested in creating and supporting social change within the movement to end violence. CSVANW Relative membership is best suited for individuals who are active supporters of CSVANW mission, vision, and values.
Our membership base is growing every year by nearly 25%, and in every corner of our service region, so we find it essential that in order to provide the same quality of community support we have increased both Organizational and Advocate level dues.
All membership tiers are valid for one calendar year and are invoiced on a rolling basis.
CSVANW is proud to have members who are passionate field experts and advocates. Together, this group champions the collective direction and vision of CSVANW.
