|FAQ About Membership Dues|
We appreciate your membership in the Association of Art Museum Curators (AAMC), and acknowledge that your investment in the AAMC is a choice you make carefully. It is our goal to continue to earn your support through exceptional service and strong advocacy for the field.
Why did dues increase?
AAMC has continued to expand its programming,
outreach and support on behalf of our members and the greater curatorial field.
We continue to do so despite the increasing costs of delivering and
administering membership benefits. In order to ensure a high level of service
and the future growth of the organization, a modest dues increase is necessary.
The new dues rates took effect on Tuesday, March
The last dues increase for the AAMC was in 2014,
the first for many levels of dues.
$65 for members earning up to $50,000
$130 for members earning between $50,000 and $80,000
$230 for members earning over $80,000
The AAMC is continuously expanding its
programming and networking opportunities, with a positive increase in
opportunities over the last two years. Since 2014, AAMC hosted seven webinars
versus three in the two years prior; expanded the conference to four days with
additional content and networking; formerly launched the Mentorship Program and
the Samuel H. Kress AAMC Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome; and
partnered with organizations such as AAMD and ADAA for programming.
AAMC dues remain low in comparison with similar
organizations with comparable benefits.
Current members that are Independent Curators
should renew at the appropriate standard membership level. Curators not
at an organization will need to submit a letter of interest and resume to be
vetted by the Membership Committee prior to being accepted. They should
apply based on the categories outlined above.
