The CIMA Council has recommended the creation of a voluntary CIMA Lifetime Membership option, and called upon the CIMA President to hold a Special Election to approve this measure.
This new optional membership fee will be perpetually ten (10) times the amount of the current annual dues. The introductory amount will be $150.00. Along with a lifetime membership to CIMA, people paying this fee will receive an official certificate acknowledging their status. Discussion of this proposal will take place at the 2009 CIMA Fall Caucus. The Special Election will take place via electronic ballot, between October 1 and October 31, 2009. Upon approval of this measure by the CIMA membership, the new CIMA Lifetime Membership option would be available for the 2010 calendar year.
