Upon acceptance, please pay the registration fee and annual membership fee as follows (applicable from Apr. 1, 2016).
Registration fee: $200 for both regular and associate members, to be paid at the time of membership registration.
Annual membership fee: The fee for regular members is based on $400 as one share, and each regular member is required to pay one share.
However, if a regular member or its parent company (corporation holding 51% or more of the total number of issued shares) or the ultimate parent company of the parent company is a listed company it must pay two shares, three shares if it is a company with a capital of 10 billion yen or more, and four shares if it is a company with a capital of 100 billion yen or more. If two or more regular members are affiliated with the same parent company (including the ultimate parent company of the parent company), one regular member may pay the fee according to the above standard, and the other regular member(s) one share.
The annual membership fee for associate members is $350.
The annual membership fee shall be paid at the beginning of each fiscal year (If joining in the middle of a fiscal year, on the day of registration). However, if a company joins on or after October 1, the full registration fee and half of the annual membership fee shall be paid. If a company changes its status from an associate member to a regular member in the middle of a fiscal year, the difference between the annual membership fees of a regular and associate member shall be paid when the change is made.
