Dues & Fees

Dues
Equity's dues structure has two components:

  • Basic Dues, $118 per year, billed at $59 semi-annually each May and November
  • Working Dues, 2.25% of gross earnings under Equity contract, which are collected via weekly payroll deductions

The maximum Equity earnings subject to Working Dues are $300,000 per year. Please note: gross earnings do not include the minimum portion of out-of-town per diem expense monies.

Initiation Fee
Equity's initiation fee is currently $1,100 and must be paid within a maximum two-year period. You are cautioned that your membership, and any monies paid, will be forfeited should you fail to complete payment of the full initiation fee within the two-year period of time.
All membership privileges, including the right to vote, attend meetings and Equity-only auditions, commence upon the initial payment of $400 towards the initiation fee within six months of filing your application.

Billing Periods
Equity's billing periods are May and November of each year; bills are mailed in April and October, and payment is due by May 31 and November 30, respectively.
Payments can be made by credit card or by check in the Member Portal. Additionally, payments can be made by phone, or dropped off or mailed to any Equity office. Cash, check, money order or Visa/MasterCard is accepted.
