2. Initiation Fee – all AGMA members are required to pay a one-time Initiation Fee of $500. This amount is due by the time an artist’s income from AGMA venues has reached $2000, or within three years of the first contract date – whichever comes first. Artists who fail to pay the initiation fee will lose their Member in Good Standing status and be ineligible to work for AGMA signatories.

3.

Working Dues – all AGMA members are required to pay working dues in the amount of 2% of their gross AGMA income. This 2% fee is only applicable to the first $100,000 of AGMA income in any given year; any income over $100,000 is not subject to the working dues fee. Working dues are normally deducted directly from the Artist’s check; several AGMA signatories require the artist to fill out a Deduction Authorization
