Individual Membership: Welcoming You to Our Community

Traditionally, NAMM membership has been a benefit provided to companies operating throughout the musical instrument industry. Beginning with The 2022 NAMM Show, NAMM is excited to welcome even more into our global community. We're proud to announce the addition of individual memberships. 

Who Can Be a Member?

For the first time, NAMM is offering individual memberships to pro audio and live sound professionals, music educators, and other professional groups to help grow our international community and collective reach.

What Are the Benefits of Membership?

With an individual membership, everyone actively working within our industry can develop a more personal relationship to your trade association, with benefits including access to NAMM events, career-building education and networking, and professional resources. NAMM also represents our industry's interests in Washington D.C. and beyond, advocating for free trade, informed regulations, funding for arts and music education, and more. Learn more on our Issues and Advocacy portal

The best part is: Your individual membership is included with the purchase of a NAMM Show badge. By bundling show access and membership, you can ensure your career growth doesn't stop at the show floor and continues all year round.

How Long Am I Member?

Individual memberships included with the purchase of a NAMM Show badge continue for the term until the next NAMM Show. The 2023 NAMM Show will be held April 13–15 in Anaheim, and The 2024 NAMM Show will be January 25–28 also in Anaheim.

Following the show, you will be prompted to indicate which portions of NAMM's activities you want to be involved with or aware of.  NAMM has a variety of newsletters and opportunities designed to broaden your industry awareness and strengthen your network and career.

Learn more about all that NAMM does on our About page, and be sure to keep in touch with your membership representatives. We'll see you at The NAMM Show!
