Gold Membership is designed for professionals who decide to give $100 additional support to the Guild towards the greater self-sustainability of the organization. SCGC Gold Members receive all benefits of the Professional membership category, plus:
  • Free or discounted admission to SCGC-produced seminars and events;
  • Your entire Gold Membership payment can be deducted as a business expense.

*Please Note: The Guild maintains a two-year maximum term for Associate level membership. Members renewing for their third year are required to upgrade their membership to Professional level. This motion was voted and passed at the 2010 AGM as a resolution recommended in order to keep the Guild focused on professional composing activities. The requirement of professional membership is simply one screen credit. We hope you will understand that the SCGC’s mission is to improve the quality of music for film, television and new media through the professional development of its members, and also to improve the status of music score composers through promotion, education and advocacy. Through educational seminars and events, it is the SCGC’s goal to assist members in developing themselves within the two-year time frame to be able to achieve a Professional level of membership.

NEW MEMBERS Individuals joining the Guild during the first six months of the year pay full year’s dues of their category. If joining in November or December you will be charged full fees, BUT the fees will count as payment for the following year as well (i.e., you will not be billed again in January).
