The mission of HighEdWeb Association membership is to connect a community of professionals to share knowledge, resources, and experiences to advance our careers, our profession, and the colleges and universities we represent.
HighEdWeb Membership Classes
The HighEdWeb Association offers multiple classes of membership, based on affiliation.
Professional Members are Web professionals employed by institutions of higher education. These members work as designers, developers, marketers, programmers, managers and strategists of Web and Web-related technologies. Members at this level within either tier (described below) are eligible to vote on Association matters, serve on committees, and are eligible to serve as voting members of the Board of Directors.
HighEdWeb offers two tiers of Professional membership consisting of the following framework. Memberships will be associated with an individual and not an institution.

- Attendees of the HighEdWeb Annual Conference shall become Premium Members
- Individuals who do not attend the Annual Conference may pay annual dues to become Premium Members
- Premium Membership will expire after one (1) year if the member does not attend the Annual Conference
- If Premium Membership expires, the level of membership is transitioned to General Membership

Affiliate Members work closely with the higher education sector but do not work directly for an institution of higher education. Affiliate Members may include those who aspire to work in the higher education sector and want to be a part of the larger HighEdWeb community, or professionals working in businesses that serve the higher education market. Members at this level are not eligible to vote on Association matters, nor serve on the Board of Directors.
Student members are future Web professionals who aspire to work in the higher education sector, or those who are working on the Web in higher education institutions as student workers. Members at this level are not eligible to vote on Association matters, nor serve on the Board of Directors or committees.
Honorary Members have made outstanding contributions to the profession or to the Association. They are approved by the Board of Directors and the voting membership of the Association. Members at this level are eligible to vote on Association matters and are eligible to serve as voting members of the Board of Directors upon fulfillment of the criteria for Professional Membership, but are not expected to pay membership fees.
