Institutional vs. Individual Membership
Which membership is right for you?
If you are an individual closely affiliated with a non-profit collecting institution in Maine, we strongly suggest that your organization join as an Institutional member. To learn whether your organization can benefit from MAM membership or qualifies to be a member, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.Institutional membership dues are on a sliding scale based on an institution’s annual operating budget; the lowest level of institutional membership is the same price as an Individual membership.
Institutional members' information is searchable by the general public through the Find an Archive/Museum search function on MAM's website. Individual members' information is only available to other MAM members through the directory in the Members' Only section of the website. If you want your organization to be listed on the website so the general public can find it, your organization must be an Institutional member.
Joining as an institution will provide your organization with enhanced benefits that both staff and volunteers can enjoy.
MAM welcomes your individual membership if you wish to join as an individual in addition to your organization’s membership or if you are unaffiliated with an institution.
Individuals who work for organizations providing services to museums and archives should join as Business Members: consultant (sole proprietors), partnerships (two-member firms), or corporate (multiple employee) members, as appropriate.
