Become an Atlantic Chapter Member! 

Annual Membership:

The membership year is July 1 to June 30.
Sustaining membership: $25.00

Regular membership: $12.00
Student/Retired membership: $7.00

All dues are collected through the Music Library Association website. Below are instructions.

Note: you will need your MLA site login! If you belong to a chapter only, and you are a first-time user of this payment site, you will be asked to create a free user profile. (You are not joining the national MLA when you do this.) If you are a national MLA member, a chapter-only member who has used this site, or a past MLA/MOUG conference attendee, then you already have a profile with a login/password. You will be prompted to sign in when you click below. (Please do not start a second user profile!)   

Instructions for Those Who Have an MLA Site Profile
(for MLA members and chapter-only members who previously created logins)  

You have two options. (Either way, you will be asked to log into your existing user profile first. Please do not create a new profile!)

  1. Pay for MLA and Atlantic Chapter memberships in one transaction. (You can also renew a chapter-only membership here. Just select MLA “non-member,” plus the chapter.)
  2. Pay for an Atlantic Chapter membership separately from your national MLA membership, or without any national membership).

Contact the MLA Business Office if you have questions or if you forgot your password. Please do not create a new profile if you already have one!

Are you a First-Time User of This System who wants to become a Chapter-Only Member?

  1. Go to the MLA site and click Join.
  2. On the Join page, select Chapter Member Only (near the bottom of the page), then click Continue. (If you wish to join as a national member, click another category instead, and later you will be given the option to also select a chapter.)
  3. On the next few pages (scrolling down, and clicking Continue as needed), create a username, select your desired chapter membership, and finish your user profile. Remember the login for future use.
  4. On the final page, confirm membership type, rate, add any donations, select a chapter (if you were joining at the national level), finish payment information, and Submit.

This will set up your user profile AND it will enroll you as a chapter member. Next year, you’ll follow the Instructions for Those Who Have an MLA Site Profile.
