One of the key benefits of membership is the opportunity to enter the ACI Annual Awards Program. The ACI Board made changes last July to help clarify the date by which dues must be paid to be considered a member in good standing. The old language was in conflict with the awards program deadline.
What you need to know is that in order to participate, “agency members” (state and federal conservation agencies, conservation NGOs) must be up-to-date in their dues payments by December 31 of each year.
Don’t delay! You have been sent an invoice for your $200 dues payments via PayPal. When you open the email you will find a detailed invoice that you can pay via credit card or print and process for payment by check. If you don’t remember seeing the invoice or are unsure whether you are current or not, call Treasurer Judy Stokes Weber at 603-276-0016 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year the submissions will all be completed online – no more overnight mail and tracking down copies of print publications. We hope you love this change! So don’t miss out – send your check for membership today!
