SCTE Membership Types/Rates
SCTE Member Types
Effective July 2023, SCTE has moved to an anniversary membership cycle. This means that anyone who joins in July 2023 will pay the full one-year price and their membership will term July 2024. We will no longer be offering the 50% dues rate between July – September with a calendar year end date as well as we will no longer be “comping” the October – December months of membership pushing the individuals into the next calendar year cycle. If someone joins (or renews) in October 2023 their membership will term in October 2024.
These changes, which impact the SCTE bylaws, were approved by the SCTE board during a previous board meeting in anticipation that these changes will ultimately help some of the back-office processing as well as make it easier for our members to join or renew at anytime. For questions, contact
SCTE offers several membership options for both individuals and organizations within the cable telecommunications industry.
