Joining ASPP Has Never Been Easier!

New Categories of Membership and Updates Announced

ASPP is unique in the world of trade associations because we are not singularly focused on one group as we encompass creators, buyers, sellers and dozens of other people who work with visual content. To keep up with our evolving industry, ASPP is taking new steps to broaden our reach and attract a wider variety of members. Here are the new options:

Affiliate Member

In addition to our regular Accredited Membership level, ASPP now offers an Affiliate Membership for semi-pros or dedicated amateurs, those interested in learning about the industry and those who are not fully qualified as an accredited member or just entering the field. There is a two-year time limit for this category. After two years, affiliates will be offered accredited membership if they qualify. Affiliates do not have access to ASPP’s insurance broker for discounted rates, cannot take advantage of our press release service, will not receive our quarterly magazine and have no voting privileges nor are eligible to hold National or Chapter Board positions.

New Options for Accredited Members

We’ve also added two new price levels for Accredited Members.

  • Members of the US Military: $75 with proof of credentials
  • Family Members: $85/per person for households with more than one accredited member at the same residential address.
Group Membership

If you work for any of these companies, you automatically qualify for our $100 Accredited Group Membership rate. When you join or renew via debit/credit card online, use the promo code GROUP.
