EVIMA Membership

What does it mean to be an EVIMA member?

Being an EVIMA member can mean as little or as much as you want it to! At the very least, you will be listed on our website as part of our member group and you will be expected to pay annual dues. At most, there are opportunities to become a committee chair, host an EVIMA meeting or event, and spearhead EVIMA initiatives on your own. You can even apply to be a member of our board!

What are my annual dues?

EVIMA Annual dues are $75.  

What if I can't afford my membership dues?

EVIMA offers a number of reduced memberships annually under our Hardship clause. If you are seeking membership but do not believe you can afford our current due structure, please contact us.

How do I know if I qualify to be an EVIMA member?

We seek independently owned and operated daytime establishments that have a physical storefront location.  EVIMA members must be within the boundaries of the East Village neighborhood as defined by north by 14th Street, to the west by 4th Avenue, to the east by Avenue D, and to the south by Houston Street. 

I want to help, but am not a local merchant. What can I do?

We welcome any social media support or publicity. We are also constantly seeking volunteers. If you would like to become an EVIMA volunteer please contact us. You can help out as little as once a year or as much as an hour a week (or more)!
