Watch for Your ABA Dues Renewal Reminder [4]

ABA logoBookstore members of the American Booksellers Association should keep an eye on their mailboxes for a dues renewal card to arrive in the coming days.

Stores can renew their dues via an online form [6] on BookWeb or by mail. The current membership year expires on January 31, 2019, so booksellers are encouraged to submit their renewal as soon as possible to avoid a break in ABA benefits. The renewal process only takes a minute. 

Owner login credentials are required to submit the online renewal form. Booksellers can request their login information by e-mailing [7].

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 [8]. 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 an opt-in to the ABC Children’s Group at ABA. [9] Membership in the ABC Group does not roll over year-to-year, and there is a separate yearly $50 membership fee.

Booksellers can also choose to support the crucial First Amendment work of the American Booksellers for Free Expression [10] (ABFE) by adding a tax-deductible donation on the renewal form.

Booksellers with questions about dues renewal should contact their ABA Member Relationship Manager by phone or e-mail:
