I already have a membership. When will I transition to the new 2023 membership levels?
Current members will enjoy all the new benefits now, without having to upgrade. On your next renewal cycle, you will be invited to choose the new level that is best for you.
Can anyone use my membership card?
Membership cards can only be used by the person(s) named on the card. Most membership levels will allow guests to join the member for exclusive events. Find the number of additional guests per membership level.
How long does a membership last?
Memberships are annual, meaning they are valid for 12 months from date of purchase or renewal. Memberships expire at the end of the month. If electing to pay for a membership monthly, the membership will remain active after the initial 12 months until the member cancels their membership.
How do I purchase a gift membership?
Gift memberships are the perfect way to open the door to arts experiences for someone special. To purchase a gift membership, visit this page of our website. The recipient will receive our inaugural Gift Membership Box, which includes limited edition welcome materials and featured artwork by AMFA Foundation Collection artist Lisa Krannichfeld. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long does it take to process a membership?
You can use your member benefits immediately online or by emailing email@example.com. It takes two to three weeks to process your membership and mail your card(s).
Will I receive new membership cards every year?
Yes, you will receive a new card when you renew your membership.
I’m interested in upgrading my membership to a higher level. Do I have to wait until my membership expires?
You may upgrade your membership at any time during the year by paying the difference between your current level and the new level; your expiration date remains the same. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and begin taking advantage of increased membership benefits.
- I’m moving, and I don’t want to miss any AMFA mailings, what can I do?
