Actual Cost of Inter/National Membership

In the past couple of years, there have been chapters that have complained about the cost of Greek Life being a detriment to membership for some.

What is the actual cost of membership for your organization that are set by your org for all members? Not including local dues or housing.

Sigma Chi - $500
$100 pledge fee
$200 initiation fee
$200 membership fee (after initiation and spread across the first two semesters of full membership)

There is also a portion of fees paid to HQ for risk management insurance. It is less than $50 a semester (I can't remember the cost per person right now).

As far as I've been led to believe, our InterNational Collegiate Dues paid directly to HQ are still just under $200.00 per member, same as when LaneSig last inquired on this topic.

ETA: From scrounging the internet, I'm assuming the price mentioned above is Per Person, Per Semester. It does not include a permanent Membership Pin, price starting @ $99.00 and goes up depending upon member jewelery preference.
