Freelance Members (individual, dual, or trio) must be self-employed (part-time or full-time) in the advertising/marketing industry. This includes art directors, graphic designers, copywriters, photographers, illustrators, account coordinators, web developers and designers, PR and media specialists, and others working for themselves with no more than two additional employees or partners.

Associate Members are friends to the advertising/marketing industry, such as printers, paper vendors, headhunters, promotional product companies, ad agencies, design shops, and others who understand the benefit and value of networking with freelancers. Memberships are valid for the entire company, but one employee serves as the main contact. Associate members enjoy all of the benefits of FX membership.
