Effective January 1, 2014, the annual dues are a percentage of AOA full annual dues based on the World Bank GNI and the country where the member resides. Canada residents must pay a 5% GST, which is included in the annual dues amount. Annual dues will be prorated for the year joined as determined by the effective date of membership. The effective date of membership is the date the online application is received. All dues must be paid in full at the time of completing the online application and in U.S. dollars by credit card.
