MGTA Membership

Membership in the Midwest Global Trade Association provides a number of benefits.

Membership is open to business people from Minnesota and neighboring states who share an interest in international business opportunities. For an explanation of membership categories, please refer to the member types listed below. MGTA reviews all applications for membership and reserves the right to deny membership to those individuals who do not meet the criteria for membership as specified in the membership requirements.

MGTA offers a rolling membership, meaning your membership begins on the date your application is approved and payment is processed, and extends for one year. Dues may be deductible as membership in a professional association on your income tax forms. Consult your tax advisor for more information. To receive member rates for an event, you must first become a member, and then register for the event(s). These will be two separate transactions.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call our office at 651.290.7482.


Options to Join:

  1. Choose the member type and complete the online application and pay with credit card or create an invoice. IMPORTANT: Membership will not be active until payment is received. If you choose the invoice option, you will need to pay in 30 days or your application will be removed from the database. If you would like to sign up as a non-member guest, please register as a Non-Member type. You will be able to log in and register for MGTA events but you will not have access to member benefits or member information.
