INS Tiered Dues Structure

As a part of the 2015 INS Strategic Plan, efforts have been underway to increase the international presence of INS as a scientific and educational organization and to recognize its multinational membership. As many of you know, INS has been increasing access to special issues in related journals and new book and journal discounts. In addition, at the 2016 Boston meeting, the INS Membership Task Force was charged with generating a tiered dues structure reflecting the income diversity among the membership in various parts of the world. Based on the recommendations of the Membership Task Force at the subsequent 2016 London meeting, the Board of Governors approved a new tiered dues structure, and at the 2017 New Orleans meeting agreed to implement these changes with the rollout of the new INS Website in 2017. The changes in dues are based on the World Bank classification of Country Income Groups, which can be found at
