Dues at the Public Affairs Council are based on the size and type of your organization and run for one year from the date that you join. The membership is held by the organization and every employee–worldwide and including all subsidiaries–is entitled to access all the members-only resources and services.

We do not offer individual or pro-rated memberships.

The Public Affairs Council is a 501(c)(4) organization. As such, your dues may be deductible as a business expense. We are a non-partisan, non-political organization and do not lobby or make political expenditures.

EU-based organizations have specific dues categories and information regarding how to join can be found here.

If you have questions about calculating your annual membership dues or joining the Council, please contact the membership team.
