Membership Questions

When do I need to make my membership contribution each year?

There are two membership cycles for reminders/invoices: Winter (January 1 – December 31) and Summer (July 1 – June 30). A reminder/invoice for your contribution will be sent to the admin and primary contacts via email at least one month before the end of the cycle. The cycle you are on is determined by when your membership application and first payment is received:

Application Received Reminder/invoice Cycle
October 1 – March 31 Winter
April 1 – September 30 Summer





What types of membership are available?

ADC membership is organization-based – ranging from nonprofits to consultants and everything in between – with individual members acting as representatives of their organizations. Individual memberships are only available for students, sole practitioners and those who are retired or in between jobs. A complete list of membership categories is available to view online.

Will my membership information be kept confidential?

Membership information collected by ADC remains confidential. Your email or postal address may be sold or shared within our member organization, not sold to outside entities. You can opt out of having your addresses shared at any time by contacting our Membership Department.

Please note: Your name and company information will be listed in the online members-only directory.

When registering for a conference, can others in my organization register as a member?

ADC membership is organization-based. Anyone from your organization wanting to attend an ADC event will be able to take full advantage of member registration fees.

What types of documentation can prove I am eligible for a student membership?

The most convenient form of documentation is a photocopy of your current student ID. You can include this photocopy when you send us your application.
