Dues Structure

Dues Structure

  • Two classes of membership, each with full and equal rights:
    • Cataloger
    • Catalog supplier
  • Note: Consultants and sole practitioners please contact the ACMA staff for specific membership terms that apply to you.
  • Dues period runs October 1st to September 30th each year. First year dues can be pro-rated to the month of joining.
