SIIA Dues Increase

SIIA has announced a 5% dues increase for all members (including FISD members).  The change was approved by the SIIA Board in January, and will go into effect on July 1, 2024.  It will affect membership terms that begin on or after that date. (If your current term ends July 31, 2024 or later, the change will be in force for your next renewal.)  For FISD members this will be the first dues increase in 4.5 years.  During that interval, U.S. CPI has gone up about 19%, and FISD has seen commensurate cost challenges related to staffing, travel, and especially event venues.
