The general public is always welcome and membership in the Academy is not mandatory to attend meetings. Members who are current in their fees are considered active members and sponsoring agencies current in their fees are considered active as well. Funds raised are used to support the financial needs of the Academy, including sponsored-project costs, hosting meetings, correspondence/postage, promotional expenses, fees, etc. Membership dues and agency fees are collected on an annual basis.
The Academy has a 501C (3) Nonprofit, Non-Governmental Organizational status. For most jurisdictions, donations to the Academy over $250.00 are tax deductible.
The organization is mostly self-funding with the majority of income derived from member fees. Members are strongly encouraged to keep their fee status updated. Records for this are kept by our Treasurer. In October 2005, the Academy membership adopted a schedule of membership types and annual fees:
Institutional (Institutions and Agencies) $ 150.00
Professional and General $ 30.00
Current Student. $ 10.00
Recent College Graduate who majored in science or environmental
