It’s easy! Pick up a membership packet at a Monday meeting, in the ABSOC Office (CBA 241), or download it on our website in the “Join“ tab. Just fill out the membership application and the “About Me” questionnaire. Return both with your check (no cash – checks only) made out to CSULB AMA to the ABSOC office (CBA-241) or to Madelyn and Jonathan at the Monday meeting.
3. How much does it cost?

All members must pay the CSULB AMA chapter dues. Dues go towards food, social events, workshops, firm tours, and speakers! As a paid member, you will also receive discounts on social events.

Unfortunately, the one time membership fee, whichever option you choose, must be paid in full. One of our goals is to keep the dues affordable for everyone without sacrificing content. We pride ourselves on trying to make everyone’s experience our upmost priority.
