Affiliation Fee: Membership fee that is paid to the CCE each year to receive resources and support from the organization and to have an ‘official’ charter. Affiliation fees should be sent into the State Office with your Chapter's Application for Affiliation. Fees will be set annually by the CCE and available online at www.georgiacivics.org.
There are two categories of Affiliations:
- High Schools who are participating in the CTAE Government and Administration Pathway's Career Technical Student Organization ENGAGE-Youth In Government have a per member fee of $15.
- Middle Schools and High Schools without the CTAE Government and Public Administration Pathway pay the Affiliation Fee by Chapter. For the 2023-2024 School Year is set at $250 per Chapter. NOTE: some schools have multiple Chapters per school. Each Chapter would pay the Affiliation Fee and have its own Charter.
