    Association of Cosmetology Salon Professionals Associate Members pay NOTHING to become a member. At the Associate Member level you receive one primary benefit — legislative updates via email. Why is this important? Your professional licensure is under assault and it will take the efforts of many members of our industry to keep us PROFESSIONALS. How do you become a member? Simply join at the associate level (email address is required) and we will email you any important legislative updates along with who to contact to voice your concerns. Thank you for helping to keep our industry regulated and professional!
