As of January 31, 2020, any bookstore member of the American Booksellers Association that has not renewed their dues is officially in arrears; booksellers who have not renewed their dues are asked to submit their renewal by Friday, March 13, after which the membership will be moved to inactive status. The renewal process will only take a minute.
A username with the appropriate permissions to renew the membership is required. For questions about the renewal process or logging in, contact the ABA membership team.
This year, ABA is asking all members to update their store demographic information. This includes inventory type, square footage, POS system, and other important details. These fields will automatically populate with the data on file; booksellers may update incorrect information or populate missing data.
Stores that pay via installment are asked to fill out the renewal form for any updates in dues level and elective fees such as ABC Children’s Group membership and/or a donation for the American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE). The payment schedule will continue normally, and stores will be charged elective fees based on the previous year.
Provisional members whose store has opened or will open this quarter are asked to fill out the new member application.
