New Complimentary Membership Tier

CHCI is thrilled to announce a new complimentary membership tier for low-budget organizations and active collaborators on CHCI-funded projects and CHCI Networks.

Membership Tier 0 is a no-cost tier of our membership for members who are:

(1) actively collaborating on CHCI-funded projects and who are also within our Tier 1 of membership (annual budget of under $50,000 USD); or

(2) provided a complimentary membership by a CHCI Network, which can provide up to three complimentary memberships to its members per calendar year.

A tier zero membership lasts for three years or as long as the member remains active on a CHCI-sponsored project.

Those eligible may join CHCI using this new opportunity by filling out our membership application and selecting "Tier 0". There is a new field for the applicant to name its collaboration on a CHCI-funded project or its involvement in a CHCI Network. CHCI staff will be in touch with CHCI Networks to track and confirm the remaining annual number of complimentary memberships they have to provide.

CHCI members joining under Tier 0 will enjoy the full benefits of CHCI membership and will not be publicly identified as complimentary members.

If you have any questions about Tier 0, please contact CHCI Membership and Diversity Officer Aaron Fai at
