Member Resources & Benefits

Take advantage of all your AZA member resources!

Individual Members

My AZA: All individuals, members and non-member users, must have an account with AZA that can be accessed by logging into their "My AZA" online account. The online account allows all to manage contact information, web password, and join/renew membership. Simply login to your “My AZA” account. 

AZA Network: Connect with peers on AZA's zoo and aquarium online networking community! The AZA Network is the hub of shared resources, discussions and ways to connect with AZA members. Log in to My AZA, then select AZA Network on the left-hand navigation. Once in the AZA Network, be sure to set your notification preferences, upload a profile picture and join Communities to connect with colleagues of like interests.

AZA Marketplace: A major element of the AZA Network is the Marketplace, an online searchable buyers’ guide, allowing users to easily search product and service providers unique to the zoo and aquarium community. From nutritious animal diets to sophisticated admissions software – and everything in between –the Marketplace is a one-stop resource in procuring service providers, tools and technology right at the click of their mouse.

Free or Discounted Admissions: Use your AZA membership for free or discounted admissions to AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums. This benefit is available to Professional-level categories, as well as Student members. Not all AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums participate in this program, so be sure to check the list before you visit. It's always a good idea to call BEFORE you visit.

Online Member Directory: The AZA online Member Directory is a searchable and completely up-to-date database that includes key contact information about organization and individual members. Access the AZA Member Directory from your My AZA account. Member listings include members in the Professional Affiliate, Professional Fellow, Professional Retired, Student, Conservation Partner, and Commercial Members. Professional Associate members may view the Member Directory, but do not receive a listing.

Organization Members

AZA Logos: AZA's signature member logos are available in versions for Accredited Zoos And Aquariums, Certified Related Facilities, and Commercial Members. Download for your organizations' use.

AZA Flag: AZA-accredited zoo and aquarium members receive a flag with the AZA logo to fly at the entrance. If your institution's flag has seen better days, please order a new one.

RFP Distribution: A handy tool for planning upcoming projects is the RFP distribution service. AZA-accredited aquariums and zoos, Certified Related Facilities, and Commercial Members themselves may submit a Request For Proposal (RFP) to AZA staff, who will forward on to current Commercial Members. Commercial Members may also obtain copies of RFPs from the online archive. Submit or view RFPs

Cooperative Purchasing: Benefit from discounts on products and services, software and advisory services through AZA Smart Source. Learn more about nationally-negotiated Preferred Vendor programs, a Purchasing Platform that can help you streamline your bidding, quoting and vendor management, and advisory services that can help you make better purchasing decisions. Visit the Smart Source website to learn more.

Mailing List Rentals: Keep the zoo and aquarium community informed about your organization’s events and efforts in science, education, and conservation. Mailing labels may be purchased for one-time use only. AZA member institutions may request one free set once a year.  The mailing labels will include the name, title, organization, and mailing address for the institutions' primary contacts only.  E-mail addresses and phone numbers are not available.  They may be received as printed labels or as an Excel spreadsheet. Learn more about the mailing list rentals.

Service Animal Posters: AZA member zoos and aquariums welcome service animals! Members are invited to download resources to assist employees in properly identifying service animals. Want to personalize this resource with your own materials? Contact Membership Services to receive a graphic file that can be used to develop your own branded materials.
