New Membership Categories Announced

New Membership Categories Announced 

March 1st, 2021


The National Board of Directors has approved a motion to introduce a few new membership categories.

New membership category effective immediately


Two-year free membership for new members who identify as Black or People of Colour. Note that there is already a two-year free membership for Indigenous creators. Both will be merged into a single category: a two-year free membership category for new BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) members.
