- the ability to foster and preserve Scottish bagpiping, drumming and pipe band music,
- maintain a connection and a network with affiliated organizations in piping and drumming organizations world wide; and

Membership fees for 2022: $25.00/person
- INDIVIDUALS: In order to register for any ASPD posted events, individuals must be an ASPD member or the member of an affiliate organization.
- COMPETING PIPE BANDS: As voted on and passed at the 2019 and 2020 AGM, the ASPD now requires all playing members of a pipe band competing under the jurisdiction of the Alberta Society of Pipers & Drummers to have a current individual ASPD membership. The purchase of an additional membership for the pipe band is not necessary.
Band Rosters must be submitted with a full list of all competing members via our Band Roster form by the start of the 2022 season. A member of the ASPD will reach out to all competing pipe bands to help process memberships.
- NON-COMPETING PIPE BANDS: Pipe Bands that are not competing may purchase Pipe Band Membership: $125.00/season
- HIGHLAND GAMES ASSOCIATIONS: Any associations hosting a Highland Games may purchase a Games Association Membership: $100.00/season.
