Cost of Membership

Membership dues for LMA and for each region are collected with the membership application. When you request an application, we ask for your postal code so we can automatically assign you to the appropriate region and local group.

Currently, LMA has regions in the United States and Canada. International members outside of the United States and Canada do not have local dues as part of their membership.
