Will my agency pay dues for me to belong to a work-related professional association?
Generally, no. However, association membership is often included in registration fees for a conference or meeting. If the agency pays the registration fees, your membership in the association is considered an incidental by-product of meeting attendance. In addition, agencies may purchase an organizational membership in the association or society for a specific agency position and the incumbent in that position may use that membership.
