can our Museum explain to colleagues about AMICO?
At the 2000 Annual Members Meeting it was determined

by the Users & Uses Committee that it would be beneficial to have
a list of potential duties that could be assigned to an AMICO-focused

AMICO Membership dues are tiered based on the budget
of the Member institution.

< $5 million
> $5 to < $10 million

does our Museum pay our Annual Dues?
Members are billed at the time of joining. Then,
they are subsequently billed annually in June for the upcoming year.
If a new Member joins at the beginning of the year their dues will
not be prorated.
For example, a new Member that joins in January, 2002
and has a budget of less than $5 million will be charged $2,500 in
January and billed $2,500 again in June for the next fiscal year of
July 2002 through June 2003.
whom is the Annual Dues invoice sent?
AMICO sends the Annual Dues invoice
to either the Director or Principal Contact for each AMICO Member.
If you would like to request that a contact in your Billing department
be designated for your institution, email
AMICO to have us make that change.
