Senior: The most popular member category. Senior members have at least five years of experience in textiles, fibers, materials, or related industries. A relevant bachelor’s degree is considered equivalent to three years of experience. An advanced degree or service in the US Armed Forces is counted as one additional year of experience. Only Senior members can vote on certain issues, or hold some positions within the Association.
Senior: US $125/year
Student: A reduced-rate membership for individuals studying textiles, fibers, materials, design, merchandising, or a related subject. Students get all the benefits of Associate membership, with FREE attendance at conferences, and access to grants and scholarships.
Developing Nations: Those living in selected developing nations may choose a reduced rate membership due to their classification as low-income and lower-middle-income economies by the World Bank Organization. Applies to Senior, Associate, and Student classifications. Developing Nations members do not receive a print copy of AATCC Review.

Local Section Officers: A 50% membership discount will be offered to Section officers¬— two discounts per section; one for the Chair, one for another Section Officer as designated by the Chair. AATCC will not offer refunds on memberships already in effect — at renewal time, a current membership can be extended another year at the 50% rate. The Section Officers must contact Membership Services annually to designate the individuals eligible for the discount
Textile Institute Members: Current members of the Textile Institute get 30% off Senior, Associate, or Student single-year AATCC membership. Current AATCC members can also join the Textile Institute at a 30% discount.
Student Chapter Officers Discount: Student Chapter officers can receive one-year free extension of membership (AATCC will not refund memberships) for every 15 (paying) AATCC Student Members (as of the May 1st membership count). The chapter officers should decide which of them receives the free membership (with approval from the Faculty Advisor). The students are responsible for contacting and alerting Membership Services to claim this benefit
