FAQs: Chapter Charter Dues Renewal

Q: What are chapter charter dues?
A:
 Chapter charters are renewed every three years, and every chapter is required to pay dues of $120. All chapters are on the same charter cycle. For new chapter charters, the dues are prorated based on the year within the three-year cycle that the chapter is chartered.

Q: When are charter dues due?
A:
The due date is June 30th, prior to the new three-year charter cycle beginning on July 1st. National sends an email communication to all chapters, three months prior to the due date.

Q: After our chapter pays the charter dues this year, when will they be due again?
A:
The charter dues that are due by June 30, 2014, will take you through June 30, 2017, at which time the charter dues will be due again for the next three-year cycle.

Q: How can we pay our chapter’s dues?
A:
You can pay your dues online, by phone or by mail. You may prefer the new online service, as the process is quick and you can print out an instant receipt.

Q: Can I get a receipt if I pay by phone or through the mail?
A:
Yes. Once the payment has been processed, you can print a receipt online.

Q: What form of payment can I use?
A:
Credit card or check. Mailed payments can only be paid by check.

Q: Can I pay the charter dues with an AACN gift certificate?
A:
Yes. An AACN gift certificate can be used to pay your charter dues; however, it can only be used for payments made by phone or by mail.

If the certificate value is less than $120, the remainder can be paid by check or credit card.

If the certificate value is more than $120, the dues amount will be subtracted from the certificate amount, and the remaining credit can be used for another purchase.
