AGMA members pay a one-time Initiation Fee of $1,000, one of the lowest among performing arts unions. For further details on AGMA's dues structure, visit the main Dues Page.
This fee can be paid off in installments of $50 per month (i.e. 5% of your initiation fee per month). Please note that Initiation Fee installment payments are only required during months in which the member is working under an AGMA contract, and as long as the member remains current on payments, they remain a member of AGMA in good standing.
AGMA members that would like to set up an Installment Plan have the following options:
- Download and fill out the Installment Plan Registration Form, (also below), and email the completed/signed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please note - this form requires credit/debit card information.)
- Call the AGMA Membership Department at 212-265-3687 ext. 2 to submit the information on this registration form to an AGMA Staff Representative over the phone - including authorization to charge a credit/debit card on a monthly basis.
Payment of the Initiation Fee or registration for an Installment Plan should be arranged within one week of the first rehearsal of the first AGMA job.Initiation-Fee-Installment-Plan-Registration-Form-REVISED-September-2022
