Classes of Professional Membership

Professional Members

Individuals who are or have been employed in the management of information resources including, but not limited to, managers, staff, sales, service providers, and educators shall be eligible to become Professional Members of the association. Professional membership dues have national, chapter and some region dues. Each professional pays $105 for national dues and then the chapter and region dues depending on the location. If the area in which you live does not have a local Professional Chapter then you have the ability to create one, or to become a Member-At-Large. For more information on finding your local chapter, please see the Find A Professional Chapter page.

When joining or renewing your membership online, there will be an option for multi-year memberships. The discount is for the Association portion of dues only; chapter dues are not discounted and must be paid by the individual member.
