Membership Dues in the First Year of Membership:
The date that a new member is deemed to have joined the association is the first day of the month following receipt of the membership application. CTMA’s fiscal year is July 1 to June 30, therefore, a new member company pays the 12-month fee in its employment category and then the following year, the company’s annual dues will be credited with the dollar amount remaining from the initial membership year. All new members require approval by the CTMA’s Board of Directors.
