ABOUT ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP

Associate Membership is comprised of two main categories: individual, and organizational (there is a lifetime category that applies to past presidents but membership in this is automatic). Associate member dues are applicable to each category. Associate membership confers all benefits of organizational membership except for voting rights, and any other limitations as dictated by the bylaws of the organization. Participation in the annual conference is subject to limitation and acceptance by the executive committee.

INDIVIDUAL ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP
