Membership approval goes through the Secretaries of the SMA who are also working stage managers so approval can take up to a week. If you have any questions about your status, please contact the Secretaries at secretary@stagemanagers.org
All membership levels are for one full year (12 months) before you need to renew.
When you join, you are automatically enrolled to have your membership renew automatically unless you cancel your membership before the renewal date. The SMA will send you an email notice approximately 30 days prior to the Renewal Date. This notice will inform you that your current membership term is about to end and will specify the Renewal Date when your membership will be renewed and your account charged. All notices regarding your membership will be sent to your last email of record. To cancel your membership without your account being charged for the next term, you must do so before the Renewal Date. Please keep a record of when your subscription term ends and the next Renewal Date. You are responsible for the timely cancellation of your membership regardless of whether you receive any notice from us. If you are not signed up for automatic renewals, log in and you can manually renew at the following link: https://www.stagemanagers.org/membership-levels/
