The CCTST provides financial support for our chapter, therefore dues are not collected for the Ohio Valley Chapter of the IACRN. To be an official member of our chapter, you would need to join the IACRN parent organization. The Ohio Valley IACRN offers an institutional membership in collaboration with the CCTST, which means that the more members that join, the more of a discount that can be offered! Please visit the IACRN Institutional Membership webpage or contact Kristal Hatter or Lori Brunner for more information.
