Yearly Membership Renewal

Sunday, January 10, 2021 1:07 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

In a continued effort to establish and streamline Chapter foundations, we've made some changes to the Chapter membership.

A lot of administrative work is involved when it comes to membership management. In an effort to streamline this process, to minimize the administration work, and to enable the Membership Director to put forth his/her volunteer effort elsewhere, such as retention, growth, onboarding, and recognizing members, we're transitioning to a once each year membership renewal process for all members (effective September 01, 2021).

  • What does this mean? It means that all members will renew at the same time each year instead of renewing on their Chapter join date.

  • Why are we doing this? This new process will save a lot of time and effort in administrative work to manage membership renewals and new memberships. 

  • How will rates be affected? The yearly rate of $125 each year will remain the same. The Board will continue to evaluate member benefits yearly as we did in 2020 by adding a professional headshot for members. However, when a new member joins or if a current member lapses in their renewal, the membership rate paid will be automatically prorated during checkout according to the membership type the member selected.

  • Are we doing this for all membership types? Yes.

  • What if my membership expires before September 2021? You can renew your membership from the Membership page, and the page will display the prorated amount to pay that is good until August 31, 2021.

  • What if I am due or overdue to renew now? The Membership Director will email those members whose membership has lapsed with instructions to renew with the prorated amount owed until everyone renews in September 2021.

  • Why can’t I see how much the prorated costs are? If you want to check out the cost to see what the Membership proration rates look like, log out of the website, and then scroll to the bottom of the Membership page.

The website has been tested to renew and accept payment. If you experience any errors, email or
