*Membership benefits to the organization include access to the AIN Resource Library, AIN Members' Newsletter, and full editing privileges on our online member's directory. 

Membership to AIN is established by our organization's Bylaws; however, the membership fee was originally collected while attending our in-person conferences. In a post-pandemic global world, it is unclear when we will hold our next in-person global conference. Nevertheless, the organization felt enabling everyone access to pay for membership removes inequities for those members who could afford to travel to an in-person conference. 

Becoming a paying AIN Member allows the organization to continue programming its events, conferences, and networking opportunities. AIN is a 501c(6) registered not-for-profit membership-based organization in the United States. We succeed through the support of its members and volunteers. Membership dues cover the hard costs of our part-time office administrator, website, and operational expenses. 

The cost for Membership is $50 USD a year. The cost for a Professional Membership is $99 USD a year.
