Membership & Accreditation

Membership dues are separate from accreditation fees. Accreditation is attained after an application has been completed, fees have been paid, an assessment has been performed, and a decision has been made by the A2LA Accreditation Council.

An organization does not have to be a member to become accredited, and accreditation by itself does not confer A2LA membership.
