An important benefit of Guild membership is the enormous communications network provided not only through personal contact with colleagues locally and nationally but also through TAO, which keeps members up to date with the profession by providing both scholarly and practical features and timely news of the Guild and its members. Positions Available listings in TAO keep members aware of employment opportunities nationwide.

Members automatically subscribe to The American Organist when they join the American Guild of Organists. The AGO membership year is July 1 through June 30. The American Organist Magazine subscription year, however, is December through November. This difference allows time to update The American Organist mailing list following the annual collection of membership dues.

  • $62 per year ($80 foreign and Canada)
  • $114 for two years ($148 foreign and Canada)
  • $162 for three years ($210 foreign and Canada).

Single and back issues of TAO (from 1981 to the present) are available for $8.00 each, plus shipping.
