Any business entity actively engaged in business as a maltster, brewer, malting brewer, distiller, or food company, is eligible for membership. AMBA has two ongoing membership categories, Regular and Associate.

REGULAR: Regular Members pay dues of $3.17 per 1,000 barrels of beer shipped (brewers) or $4.54 per 1,000 bushels of barley steeped (maltsters) or $5.31 per 1,000 bushels of malt consumed (distillers & food companies) the previous calendar year or minimum dues of $5,000. Any member paying minimum dues or more has a voting representative on the AMBA Board of Directors and Technical Committee, with input into variety development and other programs.

ASSOCIATE: For companies with volume that would generate less than the Regular Member minimum dues of $5,000 and that do not want to pay this amount to have representatives on the Board and Technical Committee, joining as an Associate Member is an option. Associate Member company personnel receive AMBA member only email communications and Gleanings newsletters on barley plantings, production, varieties, and stocks. They also have access to the member only section of the AMBA web site, which has information on malting barley varieties, research, production, and other items. Associate Members pay the same dues rate as Regular Members, with minimum dues of $500.

Associate membership provides a way for a smaller member to help AMBA meet its mission and objectives, at a reasonable cost, and with membership benefits.

For all membership categories, a company provides as many company personnel email addresses as wanted for our members only email list for AMBA communications. Members are also provided password access to our member only section of the web site.

If your company is interested in joining AMBA, please contact:
