NEW RATES For July 2017-June 2018
Provider Resource Organization (PRO) is dedicated to providing quality trainings for our members. PRO is proud to have been able to keep rates frozen for the previous four years. Over the past few years we have tracked and followed the rising costs associated with obtaining quality trainers and venues. The PRO board has continually been dedicated to evaluating and readjusting our overall budget to cut the costs and overhead expenses of PRO in order to provide the best stipend amounts possible each year to our chapters in order to provide quality trainings to our members.
PRO is committed to working with our chapter facilitators to continue to offer high quality trainings at all monthly chapter meetings and to make these accessible to all our members. Members can access upcoming trainings on our website.
Due to the continual changes and rise in requirements and standards for providers in the state of Oregon, PRO knows that our ability to offer trainings that are of quality, relevant, and accessible for our members has become even more important in order for our members to continue to be successful as child care providers.
Starting July 2017 PRO will be offering membership to PRO at a new rate to reflect the rising costs associated with being able to continue to provide quality and relevant trainings for our members.
We encourage our members to take advantage of our current membership rates prior to the increase. Members wishing to renew their memberships at the July 2016- June 2017 rate are encouraged to pre-renew prior to July 1st, 2017. Memberships will be renewed based off of your expiration date. (Example those expiring December of 2017 will be extended a full year past their expiration date with a new expiration date of December 2018.)
