AMO initiation fee for new and existing applicants reduced by more than half during union’s 2023 membership drive

Applicants have through December 31, 2023 to complete requirements for membership

American Maritime Officers has launched a membership drive. Effective April 3, 2023, the AMO initiation fee for applicants for membership was reduced to $2,500 under the following conditions:

* Applicants must pay the reduced initiation fee of $2,500 in full prior to January 1, 2024.

* Applicants must file two letters of recommendation from AMO members in good standing prior to January 1, 2024 – letters traditionally required of all applicants under the AMO Constitution.

With the $2,500 initiation fee paid in full and two letters of recommendation from AMO members in good standing filed with the union prior to January 1, 2024, an applicant will be eligible to become a full book member of American Maritime Officers.

The current standard deep sea and Great Lakes American Maritime Officers initiation fee is $5,500.

Please Note:

* Any applicant for membership who has paid at least $2,500 toward their Initiation prior to April 3, 2023 will also qualify for “Full Book Membership,” provided two letters of recommendation from two members in good standing are received by Member Services and dues are paid through the current quarter.

* In keeping with past practice, there will be no refunds of money paid over and above the previously paid $2,500.

The AMO membership drive will conclude on December 31, 2023.
