In addition, the IWFA will also be offering a one-time membership price reduction of $50 from the regular $175 annual dues for those who join the IWFA between now and the end of the conference on Friday, October 7, 2016. 

This means that a non-member wishing to take one accreditation test (a cost of $200) can instead join the IWFA for $125 prior to the accreditation instruction sessions and take all four of the accreditation tests for free.
