All payments can be made to our administrative office address as listed on our contact us page.Please note, we no longer accept American Express payments.

POSSIBLE ADDITIONAL EXPENSES:
Your organization will incur other periodic expenses related to maintaining your membership. These costs may include travel, food, housing, and conference fees (when applicable) for the Standards Introductory Workshop, ongoing STM Training Conferences, and any Peer Review meetings (for organizations choosing accreditation).  There is flexibility to schedule events over multiple (typically 3) fiscal years to minimize impact.
