Any firm, partnership or corporation engaged in the business of supplying products, equipment, machinery or services to Regular Members [manufacturers of cold process protective roof coatings] for use in their businesses shall be eligible for membership as an Associate Member. Associate Member dues are $8,000 per year if organizational sales to the coatings industry are $10 million or more annually, or $4,000.00 per year if sales to the coatings industry is under $10 million annually.
Any firm, partnership, or corporation engaged in the business of manufacturing [or selling private-labeled] [a] cold-process protective roof coatings, [b] cold-process pavement maintenance coatings, patching and repair compounds, or [c] cold-process industrial coatings, shall be eligible for membership as a Regular Member. The coatings described in this membership category shall include both bituminous and reflective products. Dues are based on the volume of product shipped: a flat fee of $2,887.50 shall apply up to the first 50,000 gallons of product shipped, plus $315 for increments of every additional 50,000 gallons shipped, with a maximum dues amount capped at $23,100.
Determination of Regular Member Dues: Because dues are based upon the volume of product shipped, it is necessary for RCMA to obtain specific information in order to determine the appropriate dues for a member. To facilitate this and to guarantee confidentiality, RCMA engages an outside fiduciary, Association Research Inc. (ARI), to receive the shipment information and determine the appropriate dues amount. That is the only information that RCMA receives, and a company’s dues amount is not shared with any other members. Shortly after mailing in this application you will receive information from ARI regarding the determination of your dues. An example of a dues calculation for XYZ company follows below:
Example: XYZ Company manufactures both bituminous and reflective products. For 2016, the volume of XYZ’s shipments for all of its roof coatings products was 400,000 gallons. XYZ’s total regular member dues for 2017 would be $4,600.00.
REGULAR MEMBERS DO NOT NEED TO INCLUDE PAYMENT WITH THIS FORM. ONCE WE RECEIVE YOUR SIGNED APPLICATION WE WILL HAVE ASSOCIATION RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) CONTACT YOU TO DETERMINE YOUR DUES AMOUNT, AND THEN YOU WILL BE SENT AN INVOICE. ASSOCIATE MEMBERS MAY SEND PAYMENT WITH THIS FORM OR WAIT FOR AN INVOICE.
