Annual Dues. Don’t let them lapse
Filed under: Networking, Mature professionals, Technicians
Posted by: site admin @ 2:14 pm

This is the time of year when our
annual dues mailing come to our
mailboxes. 
Don’t let your
membership lapse
.

There are certain rules to allow
unemployed
members to maintain
their membership. 
It involves 
requesting a dues waiver.


Please see the reply from Membership
Activities ACS
— If he is unemployed
rather than retired, and seeking
full-time employment, he could
apply for the dues waiver.

If he was involuntarily retired,
relative
to his dues, the eligibility
for the
50% retired discount is
30 years
of membership and
retired from
full-time employment. 
Contact
Member and Subscriber
Services at
1-800-333-9511 
They will be able to answer
any other questions.


In addition, another society to
which I am affiliated does not
offer this unemployed benefit.

They do offer emeritus
membership for
people over 65
with more than 30
years as a
member.  I phoned the
Executive Director and posed the
question about unemployed
workers membership dues. 
He contacted the membership
representative who contacted
me
with her approval to waive
the annual membership fees.


These are small features in the big
scheme of things but every little
bit helps.
