American Club of Shanghai (ACS) membership is open to all expatriate women and men living in the greater Shanghai area. While our by-laws state that the majority of our membership should be U.S. citizens, you do not need to be to join. We have many members of different nationalities.  However, in order to respect the regulations of the Chinese Government, we can only accept Foreign Passport holders (non-PRC citizens) as members.

The ACS membership year is from September 1st through August 31. The fee for membership is 300 RMB and is extended to your family. You will receive a membership card and number once you have completed your membership enrollment. Your membership card must be presented to receive member benefits, including member discounts.
