MEMBERSHIP FEE
The Individual Affiliate annual membership fee is $100 ($30 for students with valid ID).


The Business Affiliate annual membership fee is $250.

As of 1/1/2020, the Guild has adopted what we believe will be a more equitable fee structure for our full and educational affiliate members. Dues are now .075% of your annual budget (rounded to nearest $10), up to a cap of $2,500. Organizations with annual budgets under $300,000 will have the option to “pay what you can”. More information about the fee change can be found here

For divisions, list your divisional budget, including est. overheads.

$
The Guild requests dues to support all activities conducted on behalf of its membership, and so annual dues are suggested at the higher of the following two amounts: 1) 0.075% of your budget or 2) $200. However, organizations with budgets under $300K are encouraged to contribute dues that work for them.
