New members are invoiced upon acceptance to MagsBC. Your first dues invoice will be pro-rated for the calendar year according to the month that your membership is approved. Memberships approved September or later will be assessed dues for the remainder of the year plus the next year. The association also charges a $50 administrative fee.

When a publisher has two or more member publications, the magazine with the largest print run pays full dues, and any additional magazines by that publisher pay 25% of their full dues.

Please see our Join page for the current dues structure.
