Membership

The Council for Resource Development provides members with networking, educational opportunities, and resources that can't be found elsewhere. See why so many resource development professionals have made CRD their professional home.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the welfare of two-year colleges, and includes development officers, grant writers, foundation directors, alumni directors, college presidents, administrators, and staff. Membership is also open to the various consultants and product and service providers serving our community.   Regardless of your level of involvement with community colleges, CRD has a membership category for you.

If your college joins as a Premium Institutional Member, each paid membership entitles that person to the full array of CRD member benefits. Plus, your college President or CEO automatically receives a FREE membership. Additionally, anyone else associated with the institution who is not included as a Premium Member will receive the benefit of CRD member registration rates for all educational programs, including webinars and conferences. This is an excellent way to extend a portion of your CRD membership benefits to your faculty, foundation board members, program directors and other staff. 

Be sure to check out all the benefits CRD membership has to offer and elevate your career to the next level by joining today.
