District Membership

FASD District Membership is open to all registered special districts in the state of Florida. If you are not a special district, but interested in member benefits, see our Associate Membership. Dues for District Members are based on annual budgets, and the membership dues are calculated differently depending on if the district collects Ad Valorem taxes or does not. Listed below is a breakdown of the dues structure, but if you have any questions, feel free to call the FASD office at 855-469-3273 or by emailing fcrawford@fasd.com.
