Membership dues are based upon the annual revenue of stations. Membership dues are billed in two installments - in January and July - each year. The dues are based upon the amount of annual revenue for stations. Commonly-owned stations with studios located in the same market may combine revenue of all stations for purposes of paying membership dues. You can apply for OAB membership by either faxing in the PDF version of the 2013 application or using the online application.
