As 2017 draws to a close, members of the American Booksellers Association should renew or update their membership now.
The current membership year expires on January 31, 2018, 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.
Stores can renew their dues via an online form on BookWeb; a membership renewal link can also be found in the upper right-hand corner of every page on BookWeb. Booksellers who wish to renew their dues by mail should watch their mailboxes for a renewal form, which will be mailed out in January.
Owner login credentials are required to submit the renewal form. Booksellers can request their login information by e-mailing email@example.com.
The membership year for all members is February 1, 2018 – January 31, 2019. 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 new annual automatic renewal option.
The membership renewal form also includes an opt-in to 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.
Booksellers can also choose to support the crucial First Amendment work of the American Booksellers for Free Expression (ABFE) by adding a tax-deductible donation on the renewal form.
