The Central Illinois Chapter (around 100 members) is thinking along the same lines of you. Traditionally, everyone has renewed in January. Even if someone joins mid-year, their membership is only for the calendar year. We have different rates for which point of the year they join. However, we are currently in the process of amending our bylaws to make it a rolling membership renewal date – so that it will renew 1 year after you join. This will allow for monthly follow-up with renewing members instead of a big annual push (sometimes for the brand new membership director just coming on board), as well as allowing us to keep one membership rate for the entire year instead of it changing part-way through the year. This also aligns with how ones annual SHRM membership works – renews on an anniversary basis rather than an everyone-at-once basis.
