CCIE DUES FOR 2020 - 2022
CCIE wants to remind all our members that, now, more than ever, it is important to pay your dues.  CCIE dues are collected on the academic year - July 1 - June 30.  
It is critical that every member be current with their dues in order for CCIE to continue to support activities such as the Newsletter, Web-Page listing and Institutional Grants, Faculty Grant, and Student Scholarships. CCIE does appreciate the effort that all of you are doing to help support international education at our colleges. However, advocacy needs to continue on many levels, and support of CCIE is central in this process. For questions regarding dues, please contact Edgar Hernandez:
