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 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.
