include the LMA station’s gross revenues for a joint membership under

one annual dues payment.)

(For those stations which are consolidated, including AM stations

As a part of SCBA membership, stations agree to set aside inventory to air PEP spots on a regular basis. The suggested minimum for all stations is one spot per day 5 am-12 midnight and one per day 5 am-5 am  for each PEP campaign (maximum of four campaigns running simultaneously). As consideration for running the PEP spots, membership dues have been reduced to the amounts shown above. Should a station decline to run the PEP spots, dues will be double the amount shown above.


Annual payments are encouraged but, if necessary, a quarterly payment

schedule can be arranged for station members. Associate members must

pay annually. For those joining after January, dues will be prorated.
