Membership to the GAU is open to both affiliates, affiliate managers and program staff.
Membership is currently free during the establishment of the GAU, however, the GAU will eventually have a monthly membership fee. This membership fee will be set annually by the membership, however, initially will be $3 per month or $30 per year for affiliates and $6 per month or $60 per year for programs and affiliate managers.
You may terminate your membership at anytime by contacting the GAU and the GAU reserves the right to terminate any membership, however, will do so only after a membership vote.
To join the GAU please register here, once registered you must log in and enter a minimum of your name and website within a 24 hour period to allow GAU staff to verify your legitimacy to membership.
Membership will allow you to vote in GAU member voting issues and give you access to GAU support and arbitration.
The GAU uses your membership fees to cover operational costs and staff wages, it allows the GAU to be free of sponsorship from programs, thus dissallowing them the chance to use financial leverage to force the GAU to not pursue issues against them unlike other organisations within the industry.
As the GAU is committed to fighting for transparency, fairness and a fair market place for gambling affiliates, the GAU will not deny any affiliate membership on financial grounds. Therefore, if there is any reason why a potential member cannot pay the membership fees, the GAU will allow membership free of charge. Please contact the GAU if you have a question regarding this.
