Dues are based on your country, membership type and length of membership. They may be paid in U.S. funds ONLY.
Primary Membership by Email dues are $20 per year, no matter where you live in the world.
Primary Membership by Mail dues for collectors living in the United States, Canada and Mexico are $35 for one year and $65 for two years. For collectors living in all other countries the dues are $40 for one year and $75 for two years.
Associate members are just $5 per person per year, no matter where they live in the world.
What if I join mid-year, do I have to pay for a full year?
No, collectors who join on July 1st and later pay half price for the balance of the year. The following year they may renew for multiple years if they want.
When do I renew my dues?
The dues year is January 1 through December 31st so you will need to renew each year by December 31st for the following year, unless you have prepaid for multiple years. You will receive a reminder in the quarterly newsletter plus an email reminder if you have an email address listed with the club.

After the Membership Coordinator confirms your payment, they will approve activation and you will receive a confirmation email welcoming you to the club.

What is Junior Membership?
Junior Membership is for young collectors between 5 years and 18 years of age. The purpose is to provide education related to the hobby of collecting salt and pepper shakers in a fun and entertaining way. They receive their own printed color newsletter, “Junior News,” and are listed in the Junior Membership Roster. See benefits.
Junior membership stands alone and does NOT require a Primary Membership in the same household although parental/guardian permission is required. They may NOT hold a national office or chair a committee.
How much are the Junior Members’ dues?
The dues for Junior Members in the United States, Canada, and Mexico are $10 per year and all other countries $15 per year; however, thanks to the generous donations from our members and chapters the dues for Junior Members have been waived by a vote of the Board of Directors for several years now.
