As explained in the TAODA Bylaws, we offer two types of membership:
1) Artist Member
2) Associate Member
If you haven't yet done so, please review bylaws Article IV which deals with membership. Section 1 explains Artist Membership. Section 2 explains Associate Membership. Our association year is July 1 - June 30 of the following year. Membership dues are $25 per year for Artist Members, and $10 per year for Associate Members. Artist Members joining after December 31, during the association fiscal year will pay prorated dues of $15 for that year only. Associate Members joining at any time of the year will pay the full dues amount.
