Each year, over 100 private sector firms take advantage of the prosperous public-private partnership with NAST through the NAST Corporate Affiliate Program, founded in 1986.
As a member, you will receive discounted rates to all NAST meetings, providing you with direct contact with the nation’s state treasurers and key treasury staff. Getting to know these important decision makers will open many doors for you and for your company. NAST corporate affiliates are invited to attend all meeting social events, dinners, and receptions in order to network in a relaxed, collegial setting.
A key benefit of being a corporate affiliate is the ability to recommend topics and speakers at our meetings. It is our policy to give priority to our corporate affiliate community to provide the educational presentations at most of our conferences.
NAST believes that our success is dependent upon a strong corporate affiliate program. To help maintain this strong public/private partnership, we have a corporate affiliate advisory board on which our Senior Vice President serves as liaison, a membership committee comprised of half treasurers and half corporate affiliates, and the chair of the corporate affiliate board serves on the NAST executive committee.
Our dues structure has recently changed. Memberships follow the below structure and run from July 1 to June 30 of the following year. New firms will be pro-rated to ensure all companies have a June 30 expire date moving forward.
Membership Levels are:
Corporate affiliate membership is open to public finance industry firms and corporations that share the same goals, objectives or values of the National Association of State Treasurers.
From the NAST Constitution, Article III, Section IV:
NAST reserves the right to evaluate any Corporate Affiliate application or any Corporate Affiliate for conformity with the goals, objectives or values reflected in the constitution, the by-laws or the mission statement of the National Association of State Treasurers, and further reserves the right to take appropriate action with respect to any Corporate Affiliate application or any Corporate Affiliate which does not conform to such goals, objectives or values.
Corporate Affiliate membership does not constitute an endorsement of the affiliate or any of its practices or products by the National Association of State Treasurers.
Corporate Affiliate members may not state or suggest, either directly or indirectly, that NAST authorizes, attests or approves of any product or practice of a Corporate Affiliate. Any reference by a Corporate Affiliate to NAST Corporate Affiliate membership shall include acknowledgement of these limitations.
Applicants will be notified when membership is approved by the association. Due to the safeguard accounting procedures in place by NAST, the automatic deposit of a check for membership fees does not constitute acceptance of membership. If an application is not approved, a full refund is granted to the applicant firm.
Principal Membership: Available to private sector firms and corporations with full membership benefits.
Subsidiary Membership: Available to subsidiaries of firms holding a principal membership.
