Becoming a Member:
Artists wishing to become candidates for membership of the UA may be nominated by an existing Member or may apply directly themselves.

Associate Members work will be assessed for Full Membership by the Selection Committee after two years and may be elected as a Full Member or continue for further years as an Associate Member to have more time to reach the required UA standard.
