Professional Level: To qualify at the Professional level, please list at least 5 distinct clients in the previous 13 months where the rate paid was at or near standard professional rates for the type of work. The Membership Committee will assess the information provided.
[Use SAG-AFTRA rate sheet, GVAA rate sheet, other industry resources for guidance on professional rates. For Professional Level we do not consider: Low-rate work such as 'spot-grinder' production house or 'dollar a holler' low rate/high volume work, ACX royalty-share "paid-if-it-sells" audiobooks, work done for low rates on 'freelancer' websites, etc.]
Associate Level: If you have not completed 5 jobs for distinct clients in the previous 13 months as described above, you will automatically be welcomed as an Associate Member. You can then work toward achieving those prerequisites, and then apply to be upgraded to Professional status once you achieve them. Email the Membership Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org when you are ready!
