Regular membership in NASPA currently costs US$30 per year (regardless of residence: U.S., Canada or overseas).
Memberships purchased on or before December 31, 2009 have an extended initial term: your membership will be valid from the receipt of your dues through December 31, 2010. After December 31, 2009, each membership term is twelve calendar months.
Membership terms will be reviewed next at the end of 2009.
First-time tournament players (those who do not have a tournament rating) may buy either a full NASPA membership or a trial six-month membership (US$15) through their tournament organizer. If they opt for a trial membership, they have the option to extend it to a full membership by sending in an additional $15 at any time during the six-month trial period.
The main current benefits of membership are:
More benefits will be added as the NASPA Membership Committee prepares them.
In addition, players who join NASPA before July 1 will receive low-numbered membership numbers, a visible demonstration of their support for our nascent organization. Players who have a specific number that they want for their membership number may obtain it by paying a higher membership fee of US$50, provided the number is still available.
Members will be required to comply with a Code of Conduct, which is currently available for preview in draft form, and which took effect on July 1, 2009.
As of April 6, 2009, the NASPA membership database is now online, and may be used to verify a person’s membership status.
NASPA membership numbers consist of AA followed by six digits, and are normally assigned in sequential order. Members may request larger numbers out of sequence by paying $50 rather than $30 for their membership.
Committee members pay the same fees as regular members, but are recognized with special membership numbers beginning with “CM”; regular members have numbers beginning with “AA”. Membership numbers CM000001–CM000016 are reserved for Steering Committee members.
A refund policy is currently being discussed and will be determined by the Membership Committee.
