The membership year for bookstore members of the American Booksellers Association expired on January 31, 2019; stores are encouraged to submit their dues renewal as soon as possible to remain a member of ABA’s community of independent bookstores. The renewal process only takes a minute.
The membership year for all members is February 1, 2019 – January 31, 2020. Dues can be paid in full by ACH, credit card, or check, or on a monthly or quarterly basis by ACH or credit card. The ABA dues schedule is available here. To ensure continuous membership, booksellers are encouraged to enroll in the monthly or quarterly installment plan or choose the annual automatic renewal option.
The membership renewal form also includes opt-ins for:
- The ABC Children’s Group at ABA: Membership in the ABC Group does not roll over year-to-year, and there is a separate yearly $50 membership fee.
- The American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE): Donations in support of this crucial First Amendment work are tax-deductible.
Booksellers with questions about dues renewal should contact their ABA Member Relationship Manager by phone or e-mail:
