Private Membership Association

Spread the love

Private membership associations are a special type of private organization that’s formed by people who share a common interest. They can be informal, like a book club, or more formal, like an upscale country club. Membership in PMAs is typically governed by written rules and fees that vary depending on the type of activity offered by the association’s members. Although PMAs are similar to public clubs, there are some key differences between them that make private membership associations unique—and valuable!

What is a PMA?

A PMA is a private membership association. It is not a business, it is not a public organization and it’s definitely not a government agency. A PMA can be created by an individual, group or company for the purpose of improving the lives of its members. Members pay an annual fee to join and then they can use all of the benefits that come with being part of the association from that point forward.

In order to become eligible for membership in any PMA you must meet specific requirements set out by that particular association—some may have more stringent standards than others but all associations share similar traits when it comes to eligibility. There are usually three stages involved:

  • The first stage involves filling out an application form which outlines your reason for wanting to join (or just simply wanting more information).

How are PMAs different from other clubs or associations?

What is the difference between a Private Membership Association (PMA) and other clubs or associations?

  • PMAs are private: They can only be accessed by their members, who must first be invited. Members pay annual dues to access the club, and there may also be an initiation fee. This means that PMAs don’t have to compete for business with other clubs in town or online. Many of these organizations are highly selective when it comes to choosing new members; some will even require that you’ve been referred by an existing member before they’ll consider your application.
  • PMAs aren’t open to the public: The general public cannot use these facilities without first becoming a member—and even then, if you’re not part of an approved group like Girl Scouts USA or Boy Scouts USA and want to use one of their meeting spaces as part of your troop’s activities outside regular meetings at school/church/home etc., then again you’ll need approval from higher up in order for that event request go through smoothly.”

Who can join a PMA?

A private membership association is a group of people who have been invited to join by someone who is already a member.

To be eligible for membership, you must be accepted by the membership committee and approved by the board of directors. If you are interested in becoming a member, contact one of our current members who can help you get started on your journey!

What kind of activities do members of PMAs engage in?

While many PMAs focus on a single activity, such as golf or sailing, there are also more general ones that allow members to choose their activities. If you’re not sure which type is right for you, consider the following:

  • Do you like to take part in group activities? If so, an all-sports or all-activities PMA might be ideal. These types of PMAs offer a variety of different sports and activities for members to choose from. For example, if your favorite sport is tennis and you’d like to get together with other people who enjoy it too (and maybe even compete), then an all-sports club would give you access to that space and allow you to meet new people with similar interests. Or perhaps your main hobby is gardening but sometimes feel like getting out of the house for some fresh air during nice weather—a general activity club would let these two sides of your personality come together by providing spaces where both hobbies are welcome!

How much does it cost to join a PMA?

There is a lot of variation in the cost of joining a PMA. This can be due to the type of PMA, its size, location and amenities. Some PMAs charge annual dues while others do not; some have a one-time initiation fee as well as membership fees. Annual dues are typically around $500 to $1,500 depending on whether or not it includes greens fees at the club’s golf course(s). Initiation fees are usually less than $1,000 per member but may be much higher depending on the type of club.

Some PMAs have properties with full-service restaurants where you’ll find all sorts of food options ranging from casual lunch spots to fine dining establishments and everything in between!

PMA is not really the same as an “association,” because the latter implies that there are many members and each has one vote, whereas a PMA has only a few members (and only one or two votes).

Like an association, it can be any kind of organization that promotes fellowship among its members by providing them with social activities and other benefits. But unlike most associations, which have many dues-paying members who join or resign at will (depending on whether they want to use their rights), PMAs consist mainly of people who have been invited to join by existing members—and once you’re invited in as a member, there’s no way out except through death or resignation!


Private membership associations are a great way to connect with like-minded people and grow your business. If you’re looking for a new way to network, this could be it!
