AmSECT Membership Dues Transition
As you may know, the recent AmSECT Bylaws Amendment vote to update the language describing the timing of membership dues payments was recently approved by the AmSECT membership. Please see below for the updated bylaws language, rationale for the change, and additional information about this upcoming transition.
Approved Membership Bylaws Language:
Membership dues shall be paid to the national office annually. A member in arrears of the payment of dues shall have no vote or other privilege of membership until the account is settled.
AmSECT proposed this change to provide more flexibility in determining the timing of the collection of dues.
AmSECT will implement annual dues instead of anniversary dues, beginning in 2020. Those with a January renewal date will pay full dues rate according to their membership type; those with later renewal dates will have their dues prorated based on the month of their renewal date. Everyone will renew in January 2021 at full dues payment according to their membership type.
You will automatically be invoiced in 2020 for membership through December 31, 2020 based on your current renewal date. For new members joining AmSECT, you will automatically be invoiced for membership through December 31, 2020 based on the date of your membership transaction. New Members and Renewing Members with July, August, and September Expiration dates will also have the option to renew for 18 months.
Should you have any questions or concerns about the membership, please do not hesitate to reach out to email@example.com.
