The NIRI Career Transition Program assists members who become unemployed. The program suspends national membership dues for a period of up to twelve months at the end of their current membership term. Members will continue to receive national member benefits, including access to the Career Center, NIRI publications, e-learning, and networking opportunities.

Members must be unemployed and active, dues-paying members at the time of application. This program is open to current Corporate, Consultant, Service Provider, and Affiliated members. This program is not retroactive for previous periods of unemployment, and does not cover Senior Roundtable or chapter dues.

If members are re-employed during the dues suspension period, they are expected to renew their paid membership with NIRI at that time.

Approval is conditional upon NIRI review and qualification for the program.
