There are four classes of membership:
Active members may attend meetings, vote, hold office, serve on committees, and receive publications without additional cost. They are eligible for one free classified ad in the NAVA News per year and one free non-commercial exhibit table at the Annual Meeting. Active membership is open to any individual eighteen years of age or older. Dues are US$40 annually.
Associate members have all the privileges of active members except voting and holding office. Associate membership is open only to spouses of active members, individuals under the age of eighteen, and full-time college or university students. Dues are US$20 annually.
Organizational members have all the privileges of active members except holding office. They have free insert privileges in the NAVA News (one page per issue, member supplies inserts), preferred rates on ads and exhibit space at the Annual Meeting, and a listing on the Organizational Members web page. Organizational membership is open to any commercial or nonprofit organization. An organizational member may designate an individual to represent the organization in the Association. Dues are US$60 annually.
Honorary members are selected by the Executive Board on the recommendation of the Membership Committee for rendering distinguished service in the field of vexillology or to the Association. Honorary members do not pay dues, but have all the privileges of membership except voting and holding office.
Any school, library, or other institution may subscribe to the Association’s publications for US$40 annually.
