Organizational Affiliates

Organizational Affiliates are organizations that join CARA on an annual basis (membership year is Jan. 1 – Dec. 31). They pay dues based on the membership size of the organization, between $50 per year (for organizations of 50 or fewer members) up to $800 per year (organizations that have 501 or more members).  These affiliates are entitled to voting delegates at the CARA Convention based on the size of their membership.
