Over the past few years, AMIA has moved to implement a sliding scale for event and webinar fees. In January, AMIA will implement a new sliding scale for individual membership fees.  It has been more than ten years since membership fees have been reviewed, and we have made an effort to add new levels and keep the base low.

The new fees will use the same sliding scale as our events with senior, middle, and new professional levels. We are adding a bridge rate for members who are between jobs, as well as a rate for those who are retired but still active within the community. The GDP rate for international members and the student member rates will stay the same. You can see the rate schedule here.

For international members, please note the new Individual Member (GDP Per Capita Rate) for members living in countries whose GDP per capita rate is less than 60% of the US GDP. [For example, the 2019 US GDP per capita calculated by the UN was 65,134 – for those coming from countries with a GDP per capita less than 39,080 the discounted rate applies.] This chart lists countries by GDP per capita and currently reflects 2018 values.
