There are two types of group membership available; they are similar, but each has a few very distinctive characteristics.
Organizational Group Memberships are owned by an organization with single billing and a dedicated NCMA staff member to administer your group and answer your questions. Organizational Group Memberships are priced on a sliding scale. The greater the number of memberships purchased, the greater the discount. Memberships within this type of membership may be transferred between individuals, at the discretion of the organization. All members in the group retain the same expiration date, and therefore one billing per year with proration for those who join throughout the year.
Organizational Individual Memberships are owned by an individual and are made available to individuals under an agreement between their employer and NCMA. They offer individual billing using the same sliding scale (based upon the number of people in your group). Each group member has his or her own expiration date.
