Membership Dues Update

The UAA is thriving because of you!

As our association continues to provide more offerings, the time has come to increase our membership fees. Starting January 1, 2024, we are increasing dues to $75 a year for an individual membership. This rate will be fixed for three years, after which we will revisit the cost structure. Please watch your inbox for an email coming soon from UAA President Brandon Hughson with more explanation.

We would like to thank our members and our sponsors for their generous support over the years and we look forward to continuing to work with you.
