League Membership

PLEASE NOTE THE NEW DATE FOR THE OCTOBER MEMBERS MEETING
It will be
Wednesday, October 22, 2014. Please attend.

There are currently almost 4,000 active members of the Art Students League of New York. As is reflected in the name, the League was started by art students who were determined to have a school where their needs and opinions were able to be voiced. As part of this plan the Membership was formed. The first memberships were those students and handful of instructors who would determine the structure and set down the parameters to guide the institution. Moving forward members were elected who showed the passion and commitment to the study of art and were willing to show their support and participate in the perpetuation of the League. What started as a grand experiment has resulted in a unique institution over 130 years young. Location, facilities, and even the classes taught have changed over the years – but not the passion and commitment of its membership.

Membership Status: Renewals, Reinstatements, Voting Status

  • Regular Member vs. Life Member
    After ten years of active membership (upon the eleventh payment of dues) a member will be considered a Life Member of the Art Students League, entitling the member to all the privileges of membership—without any annual dues.
     
  • Renewals
    The membership year runs from September 1 through August 31 of any given year.
    Annual Membership renewal payments, currently $35, are due August 31st of each year, regardless of the date of your initial payment.
    Please note, the payment of the annual dues is the responsibility of the Member. In the past , the mailing of Renewal Letters was a courtesy by the League, which may be discontinued in future, and does not mitigate the Member’s responsibility in any way.
    Please note that Membership dues are not the same as the annual Student Registration fee.
     
  • Lapsed & Dropped Members
    Lapsed: Members who do not renew by August 31st become Lapsed Members.

    Dropped: Failure to renew within twelve months of becoming a Lapsed Member results in a member being Dropped.  A Dropped Member is ineligible for membership benefits and must apply to the Board of Control for reinstatement.
    A Reinstatement Request Letter (generated by the Registrars) and signed by the member, must be submitted to the Membership Dept. by the Thursday prior to the monthly Board of Control Meeting. Reinstatement will cost $70.
    Current deadline dates for submission: April 3, 2014, May 1, 2014, June 5, 2014.
    There are no Board of Control meetings in July and August.
     
  • Member Active / Inactive Voting Status
    This voting status does not affect your Membership status.
    Active voting status is a Member designation for those who vote or attend Member Meetings on a regular basis by either returning (completed) the  yearly Ballot, OR by attending  one of the three (3) yearly Member Meetings—October, December, April. Not doing one of the above  will result in your status becoming inactive.
    To restore your active voting status you will need to request a status change from the Board of Control. However, this request cannot be submitted within 30 days of a Members Vote.

Note: Keeping your address and other contact information up-to-date is crucial to our being able to mail our publications and other important information to you. Please use the Member Information UPDATE FORM whenever you have any changes to make.
