STC Annual Membership Dues

Synthetic Turf Council - Annual Membership Dues

Annual membership dues are based on the

  • Membership Category in which a company is applying (for category descriptions click here)
  • The company's self-reported Annual Gross Revenues in the synthetic turf industry only (other company revenue not included - calculated based on company's revenue related to the synthetic turf industry only. Information held confidential).

The first full year of membership dues are due with the membership application. This pays the membership for one full year from the date joined. (For example, if you join in June, you pay one full year with your application and your membership is renewed through the following June).

When membership is up for renewal, one year from the join date, members are invoiced for pro-rated membership dues from the anniversary of the date they joined until December of that year (partial year dues).

Going forward, all members are placed on a January-December membership year and membership expires each year on December 31st.

Annual membership dues are due by January 1 of each year.
