Per the CIRTL Bylaws, member dues and in-kind contributions may be proposed by the CIRTL Leadership Team and approved by the Members, with final implementation subject to the rules and regulations of the CIRTL Network’s host institution.
The core operations of the CIRTL Network are funded primarily by member dues. This largely supports personnel (network administration & operations, local learning community support, cross-network learning community support, evaluation), along with in-person meeting expenses, travel, website support, technical equipment, and supplies. Many backend Network operations are provided by the host institution in return for 30% overhead on the institutional dues. These provisions include space, personnel management, IT support, business services, legal and IRB support, pre-proposal services and grant administration.
Dues are $13,000 for the 2023-2024 CIRTL fiscal year (FY), which runs July 1st to June 30th. An annual increase of 2% will be implemented every 3 years. The precise schedule of dues for upcoming years is shown in the following table:
|FY 23-24||FY 24-25||FY 25-26||FY 26-27||FY 27-28|
Payments must be received by August 1st each year. Institutional Leaders, Administrative Co-Leaders, and/or their designated financial contacts will receive an invoice for member dues in early May, or for new institutions, after the invitation to join the Network has been accepted.
