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, salary survey, 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 industry roundtable dues.

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

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