Professional Members

If you work in the entertainment industry, then you are eligible to apply for the Academy of Country Music's Professional Membership. Eligibility for professional members is limited to those individuals who derive a significant amount of their income directly from country music; however, admission to membership is subject to the complete discretion of the ACM Board of Directors. Dues are $75 annually for individual membership.

The membership application and renewal period for the 53rd ACM Awards is closed. Please check back for updates on important timelines for the next membership application and renewal cycle.

Thank you.
