How much does CCRE membership cost?
Is membership on a calendar year basis?
Annual CCRE Membership is $175 for General or Participating CCRE Memberships. Participating Membership also requires membership in the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). For CCRE members, IACP membership is $100, a $50 savings off IACP's $150 individual annual membership fee.
New members pay a one-time fee of $25, which includes:
A copy of the book, "Collaborative Practice Materials," by Catherine Ann Conner and Margaret L. Anderson, a $50 value.
Charter Memberships are optional. The annual fee is an additional $445 per year. General Members and Participating Members have the option of "pay as you go" for meals or "Charter" Membership status. The cost of breakfast/lunch/dinner meetings is included in the dues paid by Charter Members. (The only difference between General Member and Charter General Member status, or Participating Members and Charter Participating Member status, is that Charter membership includes the cost of meals/meetings in the annual Charter Member dues.)
A Special Membership for law students, 1st year financial professionals, 1st year mental health professionals, 1st year lawyers, paralegals, and law office staff is available at an annual fee of $50. Special Membership includes all the benefits of General Membership at a special annual rate.
Memberships are on a calendar year basis (January-December) regardless of when you join. The annual membership fee for new members joining after July 1st is discounted 50%, in other words, $87.50 instead of $175. (The New Member fee and Charter Membership fee are not discounted for joining after July 1st.)

Anderson.
How do I keep informed of news and events related to CCRE?
You will be asked to join the CCRE ListServe available through YAHOO! Messages are posted on the ListServe to keep you informed. You will also be added to the CCRE e-mail distribution list.
I have qualified as a Participating Member, is there anything else I should do?
My name doesn't show up on the website listing. Why not?
As soon as you have received notification from IACP that you are a member, you should go to the IACP website at http://www.collaborativepractice.com/
to create your IACP Profile. Once you have completed all of the participating member requirements, your listing will be added to the CCRE website. Since your CCRE listing will include a link to your IACP Profile, it is very important that you create your IACP Profile as soon as possible.
