Membership - A. K. Rice Institute

A. K. Rice Institute Membership

The A.K. Rice Institute and Affiliates are organized and operated exclusively for educational purposes in accordance with Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All membership dues and contributions are tax deductible.

While the A. K. Rice Institute (AKRI) is a non-profit organization run primarily by volunteers, we are required to contract outside administrative support to manage our many functions. It is your membership dues, financial contributions, and volunteer time that affords our organization to survive and thrive.


Membership Eligibility

The only requirement for AKRI membership eligibility is participation in a Group Relations Conference or equivalent experiential educational event. The qualifying event must have been offered by AKRI, one of its Affiliates, or other AKRI Board-recognized organization that is explicitly identified with Group Relations work.


Membership Dues

There is an annual fee to maintain AKRI Membership status and to receive associated benefits and services. Discounted dues for Associate Memberships and renewals are offered during our annual Membership Drive. A reduced-cost, Student Membership is also available year-round with valid student ID.
