In my final official communication with you as President, I am writing to request that you take a minute out of your busy holiday schedule and register as a member of CCTC by paying your dues at http://consumerculturetheory.org/?page_id=201.
In order for our professional association to grow and prosper, we need the additional financial support your membership dues will provide. Such funding will lessen our dependency upon the increasingly uncertain largesse of universities in underwriting conferences, and allow us to undertake other exciting initiatives around the globe. We have kept membership dues modest (and offered a student discount) to be as inclusive as possible, and plan to offer a growing array of benefits in the coming years.
I think of our membership collectively as the gift of insight. CCTC researchers present the discipline with the kind of scholarship it requires to flourish. Your dues will help keep that gift circulating. Please join CCTC today.
