Membership in ASI is available to any Seventh-day Adventist church member in regular standing, who shares in the goals and purposes of ASI, and who operates a business, provides a professional service, or operates a supporting ministry, and whose organization has been in operation for at least one year. ASI considers organizations to be supporting ministries recognized by the church when they sign and adhere to the “Guidelines for Supporting Ministries” as approved by the South Asia Pacific Division (SSD) and the ASI Board of Directors.
Continued membership for organizations or individuals in any category is contingent upon the organization and/or person conducting the business of the organization remaining in harmony with Seventh-day Adventist principles and/or personally remaining in regular standing with the Seventh-day Adventist Church. In order to avoid trademark infringement, member organizations are encouraged to use a name designation that does not include the name Seventh-day Adventist, SDA, or Adventist. As ASI is an organization for SDA laymen and women, its members are not employed by, and do not receive any salary from, any Seventh-day Adventist organization listed in the Seventh-day Adventist Yearbook.
