2019 ONE ITE Changes

The following changes have been implemented to VASITE membership starting in 2019

As many of you have likely heard, ITE International has recently developed a “ONE ITE” initiative, with one of the impacts to VASITE being a transition regarding Affiliate membership. This is a change that ITE International is making to the entire ITE organization – Districts, Sections, and Chapters. The One ITE initiative came out of their 2016 Strategic Planning effort and is the component of the adopted ITE Strategic Plan (

As part of this change, VASITE Affiliate members are qualified to become full ITE members and take advantage of the membership benefits!

How does this transition affect you at VASITE?

  • If you are currently a full ITE International member, nothing is going to change for you.
  • If you are currently a VASITE Affiliate member (not an ITE International member) but have been curious about the benefits of ITE membership, this is a good time to try it out. ITE International is offering the following phased dues for our current Affiliates (if you paid VASITE Affiliate dues in 2017 and 2018):
    • 2019 – pay normal VASITE Affiliate dues ($40) and receive free ITE International membership
    • 2020 – pay 50% of the normal ITE International membership dues
    • 2021 – pay full ITE International dues
  • If you are currently a VASITE Affiliate member and do not wish to become an ITE International member, we still welcome you to participate in ALL VASITE activities. We need you! You will no longer be charged VASITE Affiliate dues; however, there will be a higher cost for you to attend VASITE meetings to offset the lack of dues.
  • If you are in Northern Virginia, you may be paying dues to the Washington, D.C. Section of ITE. In order to ensure you are paying dues to VASITE, contact ITE at [email protected] to set your section to Virginia.
