Organizations have several choices when determining which membership is best for them, but the true determining factor is how many staff an organization has. The second determining factor is if your organization would like a Standard Membership or a Premium Membership.

 

STANDARD MEMBERSHIPS

Americans for the Arts Standard Organizational Memberships allow members at the Basic, Choice, Core, Strategic or Preferred levels equal access to a set of standardized member benefits and services. The only difference between these levels is the number of staff members receiving benefits.

Upon joining or renewing your organization’s membership, please submit staff names, titles, e-mail addresses as well as board/commission member addresses and phone numbers to membership@artsusa.org to ensure that they receive access to Americans for the Arts member benefits. Please note that it is the responsibility of the membership primary contact to keep their staff/board roster up-to-date and allocate which of their staff or board are able to receive the aforementioned benefits/services.

Organizational memberships run on a calendar cycle expiring on December 31 each year, regardless of your join date. Please contact membership@artsusa.org with any questions about membership periods, joining or renewing, staff/board rosters, or any other questions you may have. Please allow two weeks for membership payment processing and activation of member benefits.
