Hello fellow Craft Server members.

Once again I'm guilty of surfing the web and info gathering instead of making and testing products, LOL. Anyway, I'm curious to know if anyone on here is a member of one of these groups, NCA and ASTM? The cheapest membership to NCA is $750 annually which isn't friendly to a crafter's checkbook. ASTM has an affordable $75 annual membership fee. I know I won't be joining NCA any time soon, not until I build my candle empire and can afford their fee. 😄  I have included links to the membership benefits pages. I have some questions if anyone has any experience, answers or insight to share. Thanks.


Is membership to either of these organizations worth the money and effort?

Do you see actual benefits, particularly increased sales due to being a member?

Do your customers even know or care about these organizations?

Do your customers do business with you because you are a member?
