CIO in Transition program
The CIO in Transition program is open to existing CIO Association members in good standing whose annual membership has expired and who no longer meet the criteria for membership due to loss of employment, leave of absence or similar circumstances such that the member is not employed full-time. The member’s local Chapter Board will review each request for this program to determine whether the situation meets the criteria.
During the term of a CIT membership, members are expected to provide 20 hours of volunteer project work for the Association, either through their local chapter or national office. The term of a CIT is limited to a maximum of one year only, after which time members will be expected to pay a regular membership fee. Arrangements can be made for CITs to make installment payments on their membership dues. When a CIT becomes employed (either full time or on contract) they will be given a grace period of 3 months, and then will be invoiced for their membership. Membership dues must be paid within 30 days of invoicing in order to retain member status and privileges.
