To have the dues payment structure better account for the drastic decline in print circulation and more closely mirror the more even distribution of members in all four contest circulation categories, the APSE executive committee has  voted to restructure membership dues.

The fees for each category remain the same for all members, and the unique monthly visitor numbers for online-only members remain the same.

As we begin the 2021-22 membership drive in the coming weeks, the following dues structure will be in place.

Division A: 90,000 and over; stand-alone websites with more than 2 million unique monthly visitors; wire service individuals

First member: $325
Each additional member: $75

Division B: 35,000-89,899; stand-alone websites with 750,001 to 2 million unique monthly visitors

First member: $250
Each additional member: $75

Division C: 15,000-34,999; stand-alone websites with 250,000 to 750,000 unique monthly visitors

First member: $175
Each additional member: $75

Division D: 14,999 and under; stand-alone websites with under 250,000 unique monthly visitors; weekly newspapers

First member: $115
Each additional member: $50
