Individual Membership

Application Process

Individual Membership and Institutional Program Coordinator – Please Make Note of the Following!

  • Are you an Individual Member and the Designated Coordinator for your Institution?
  • NCRE membership benefits and MyNCRE Community access vary based on your membership type. If you have two different accounts, such as the designated coordinator for the Institution and have your Individual membership please note that you will have to use a unique email address for each account.
  • I highly recommend you use your primary institution email address when completing the Institution online membership application and your personal email for your Individual membership application.

New Membership Application Process – Please Read Before Completing the Online Application!

  • Membership Application is only available online. The membership application is located to the right side of the page under Membership Fee and Application.
  • It is important the Individual member complete the online application, as many of the questions will not be answerable by the administrative assistant and/or office personnel.
  • The online membership application is created to help generate the Individual Membership user account, as it will collect needed information to create profile.
  • This data will help us serve you better by driving content and activity to your areas of interest and help better organize NCRE as a whole. As part of this process you will also be asked to create your MyNCRE Community Username/Password.
  • After you have completed the online membership application, and payment has been processed you will receive an email confirmation to include your membership receipt, and detailed information on how to get started and access the MyNCRE membership benefits.

Payment Options

  • The secure online membership form will accept Visa, MasterCard or Pay by Check.
  • Paying with a credit card provides you instant membership benefits including MyNCRE Community account.
  • Paying with a check will still generate your MyNCRE Community account, however, neither it nor your other online membership benefits will be available. Please note, once payment has been received by the administrative office and processed it may take 7-10 business day to receive an email to confirm when your full benefits have been activated.
  • Once you complete the online membership application, and regardless of the payment option you select (Visa, MasterCard or Pay by Check) a copy of the membership application will be emailed to the address you provide. Therefore, please print or forward this email to the appropriate person if your employer is paying for your membership.

Please Note: Dues are non-refundable and membership is non-transferable, but fully portable should you change your employer. A $30.00 charge will be assessed for returned checks
