Associate Memberships are for for-profit, U.S. small businesses (and/or their principal officers) with U.S Government (USG) domestic contracting history or experience in international development, but with no past or current U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) or other USG Agency contract experience providing foreign assistance. Associate Members have the ability to transition to Full Membership type upon receipt of a USAID or other USG Agency foreign assistance prime or subcontract. After 5 years of membership with SBAIC, if the company has not been awarded a prime or sub-contract with USAID or other USG Agency Foreign Assistance, it will no longer be eligible for membership.
Annual dues for Associate Membership are $200 with an additional $7 for electronic check (ACH) and/or credit card payment processing.
