Membership in NFTA is by invitation only and there are two steps. First, companies proposed for membership must be sponsored by a current member and will be asked to provide an annual report and an overview of their transportation expenses. Secondly, provided the minimum criteria is met, the company's nominee will be recommended to the membership committee by the original sponsoring members. Nominees will be notified of their acceptance promptly. Any current member can sponsor a candidate for membership.

The initiation fee is $50 and currently the annual dues for each member is $475.00 Meeting fees are currently $200.00 and are billed with the hotel charges at each meeting.
