MAC does not have individual members at this time.  Benefits and dues rates vary depending on which membership category best fits your organization.  Starting May 2021, MAC no longer charges an additional rate per member -- organizations can join and enjoy the ability to enroll an unlimited number of their employees into their membership.  

Please select the category of membership that best matches your organization type.  If you have any questions on which category of membership would be the right fit or other membership questions, please contact us ([email protected]), and one of our awesome volunteers or a staff member will be happy to assist you!
