The purpose of the American Guild of Organists is to promote the organ in its historic and evolving roles, to encourage excellence in the performance of organ and choral music, and to provide a forum for mutual support, inspiration, education, and certification of Guild members.
Voting Membership is available to all organists, choral conductors, and other individuals who support the mission of the Guild. Voting membership can be with or without chapter affiliation and includes participation in all national activities, elections, eligibility for certification examinations and for all insurance plans, and a one-year subscription to THE AMERICAN ORGANIST Magazine. Membership is available at reduced rates to those age 65 or older, under 21, the disabled, and full-time students. Dual membership is available for those members who wish to be involved with more than one local chapter.
Non-Voting Membership is available for individual and institutional National Subscribers to THE AMERICAN ORGANIST Magazine. No chapter affiliation, voting privileges, or other benefits are included. The one-year TAO subscription begins with the second monthly issue following receipt of payment.

Chapter Friends support the local Chapter, receive chapter newsletters, and participate in chapter events. Local chapters determine the rate for this category, which does not include national voting privileges, membership benefits, or a TAO subscription.
