How to complete the Membership Application
You are an active ABE member only after getting approval from the ABE Information Manager AND having paid annual membership dues.
Current ABE Members
To be an active ABE member, you must be current with your annual dues ($65).
Dues paid are for the calendar (not academic) year. You will receive an email reminder notice in mid-December to renew your membership for the upcoming calendar year prior to January 1.
Failure to pay dues by January 31 will result in the inactivation of your ABE membership.
Payment of Annual ABE Dues
In order to support the ABE mission, all ABE members must pay annual dues of $65. Subsequent membership dues are renewed every January 1, regardless of when you paid the previous year's dues.
To renew your ABE member annual dues, simply login to your member account and follow the renewal prompts. Payments may be made by credit card or check. We accept all major credit cards. To pay by check, select "generate an invoice"
Dues related questions
Did I pay my dues in this calendar year?
When did I pay my dues this year?
If you want answers to these questions, log into the dues payment link above. Once you are logged in, you will see a summary of your payment. There is a renewal date. If it is January 1 of this year, you have not paid your dues yet this calendar year. If you have paid your dues this year, the renewal date should be January 1 of next year. If you still want more information of when you paid your last dues, click on the Membership Dues link, and proceed to checkout. Scroll down to transactions and click on the previous transactions link. You will see more info on when you paid last, and what card was used. If you have trouble with this procedure, contact the Information manager for additional assistance.
