Please Note:

All dues are payable in U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank. Bank coupons are not accepted. Please check with your sales department to determine the appropriate level of dues. After initial dues are paid, dues are paid on a calendar year basis and due January 31. Please be assured that all dues payments are kept on a strictly confidential basis and not released to any member company nor to any other party.

Dues are not deductible as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes, but may be partially deductible as a business expense. GCA estimates that 20 percent of your dues are not deductible because of the GCA’s lobbying activities on behalf of its members.
