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
A firm must be operated on a for-profit basis as a separately identifiable entity that provides staffing or employment-related services to third parties and does not charge its employees a fee for placing them in jobs. A company must be open for business and actively placing employees on assignment in order to join ASA.
To become an international member, the corporate headquarters of a staffing company must be located outside the United States and have no U.S. staffing operations. Only the headquarters office may become an international member. If the applying company has any U.S. staffing operations, its U.S. entity must already be an active member. No staffing firm shall be eligible for ASA membership unless dues are paid by all staffing firms that have an ownership interest in or are under the common ownership with such firm.
Associate membership is available to those companies providing products or services to the staffing industry.
The dues investment for an international member is $1050 annually.
International membership is a nonvoting membership in the association. An international member’s branch, franchised, and licensed operations are entitled to take advantage of member rates for all ASA publications and services.
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.
ASA membership is based on the calendar year Jan. 1 to Dec. 31.
Please complete the following and submit to ASA with your membership investment. If you have any questions, please call 703-253-2020 or send an email to email@example.com.
