Student Membership Challenge 
SMPTE needs to attract students to membership to help us grow – and we need the best and brightest in our industry.  One of the best ways to do this is to educate college and university students in technical fields about our industry through their membership in SMPTE.  Even though the $35 annual student dues may seem to be quite modest, for a student on a very limited budget paying for college, $35 can be significant amount.  Pay for a student today – gain a great colleague tomorrow!
