Membership Information and Membership Categories

Special Note for Renewing Members:

To renew electronically, check the Main Menu for a "Renew Now" option.

Do not use the Join button at the bottom of the Home Page, because that is for new members only!

ACGA welcomes all artists, educators, collectors, art professionals and everyone interested in the creative practice and appreciation of the ceramic and glass arts. Our Association has developed several categories of membership to encourage the participation of the entire clay and glass community and provide valuable benefits to its members.  All members receive our monthly newsletter.

For questions about membership contact Emil Yanos for more membership information.

For Membership RENEWALS (late): Renew your membership for 2018 -- it is now past the deadline, so a late fee of $10 applies.. You can renew here using the old method, but please consider the online method.  Check the top menu bar just after the ACGA logo for your renewal status.  When logged in, there should be a Renewal menu option.  Hover over that to see your renewal link.  Please check that it is showing the correct membership level for you (if not, email Ken Metheny for correction), then click on that to start the renewal process.  After renewal is completed and your payment is verified, the leftmost menu item turns green and says you are renewed.  If it does not change within a few days, please alert Emil.  Please print or capture any receipts provided during the process.
