Who can join the RP Group?
We welcome individual California Community Colleges and district offices to become members of our organization. Once your college or district office joins, any number of employees may access the RP Group’s services. If a district office joins the RP Group, individual institutions within the district must still pay membership fees in order for its employees to access member benefits (and vice versa).
Individuals who are not employed at a California Community College and organizations working in support of community colleges may also join the RP Group at the associate level.
Individuals and organizations that join as associates have access to the RP Group’s network and will receive information on our numerous professional development opportunities, research and evaluation projects, tools and resources for practitioners, etc.
Associates do not have voting rights and do not receive discounted member rates at RP Group sponsored conferences, academies, or institutes.
What does membership cost?
Current membership fees (July 2020 - June 2021) are $500/year. This fee applies to both individual community colleges and community college district offices.
Associate level memberships are $150 for organizations and $75 for individuals.
What do my membership fees support?
RP Group membership dues contribute to providing affordable professional development to members. These funds also enable us to keep our website resources up to date, cover regional research group costs, and support a variety of conferences, workshops, webinars, and institutes.
