The Clock’s Ticking: Renew Your ABA Dues Now! [3]

The current membership year for bookstore members of the American Booksellers Association expires on January 31, 2019; so stores are encouraged to submit their dues renewal as soon as possible to avoid a break in ABA benefits.

A dues renewal card was sent to stores in the mail, but stores can also renew their dues via an online form on BookWeb [5]. 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 [6].

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 [7]. 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 [8]. 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 [9] (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:
