Code of Ethics and Good Practices
ASA members agree to abide by the association’s Code of Ethics and Good Practices. Any violation of the code may result in the loss of ASA membership.
Qualifications for Membership
The company applying for associate membership must be a supplier to the staffing industry. A firm may not qualify for associate membership if it operates or has any ownership in a staffing company (except ownership of less than 2% of a publicly traded company) unless the staffing company is an active member. ASA members with separate divisions, subsidiaries, or lines of business must enroll those separate operations as dues-paying members for those operations to receive ASA benefits.
The dues investment for an associate member is $475. The membership year runs from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31.
Associate membership is a nonvoting membership in the association. Associate members and branch, franchised, and licensed operations of associate members are entitled to take advantage of member rates for all ASA publications and services including advertising and exhibiting. All changes in address and designated company representative must be submitted in writing to ASA on corporate letterhead by the current designated company representative.
Dues and other contributions or gifts paid to ASA are not tax deductible as charitable contributions; however, they may be tax deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Federal tax law disallows deductions related to certain types of lobbying and political activities. While most of ASA’s lobbying and political activities are not subject to this limitation, ASA estimates that in 2020, 12% of dues revenue will be used for activities that cannot be deducted. Therefore, 88% of your dues may be deductible as a business expense for federal tax purposes.
