HI membership dues are paid on an annual, calendar year basis. Dues are based on prior year sales. The calculations vary depending on the type of membership. There is a one-time $3,000 application fee which is returned to the applicant if, for some reason, the application is not approved by the HI Board of Directors. The application fee is waived for former HI members. The dues calculators below are provided to give you an estimate of what your total annual dues would be. Updates to the annual billing factor may adjust this estimate. Since membership is on a calendar year basis, first year dues may be pro-rated according to the number of months remaining in the year.
