Consignment is the act of consigning, which is placing material in the hand of another, but retaining ownership until the goods are sold. NCTM Affiliates have the ability to order NCTM publications on consignment. Consignments allow Affiliates to make NCTM resources available to their own members at their own events. The Affiliate pays 70% of full retail price of all educational materials sold. The value of sold products is calculated by NCTM as the difference between the value of products sent and the value of products returned. NCTM covers the cost of outbound and return shipping for Sample and Regular consignment orders. For more information on the consignment program, download Consignment guidelines. To request a consignment submit the Consignment Request and Agreement Form.
