Membership Renewal

Members will receive an email reminder 30 days, 14 days, and 7 days before their membership expiration date with instructions on how to renew their membership and a link directly to the form. If you are part of an Institutional Membership, only the primary contact for that membership will be contacted on all three occasions. Dependent members (up to 5 additional members allowed on Institutional memberships) as well as the primary contact will receive a message if the membership lapses without renewal. The primary contact is the only member that may initiate the renewal form. Unfortunately, this task may not be delegated to an administrative assistant as the membership is tied directly to your profile.

If you are the primary contact responsible for renewing the Institutional membership, you will also need to renew any of the dependent members that you wish to keep on the membership at that time. You do this by reviewing and updating your OWN profile information and then clicking on the CONTINUE button. You will then have the opportunity to renew EACH existing dependent member. If you do not wish for them to stay on the membership, simply do not renew that person's membership. If you'd like add a NEW member to your Institutional membership, you will simply complete the renewal form for yourself and the existing dependent members first. Upon submission of your renewal form, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for adding new members to your Institutional membership.

All of these instructions appear directly on the renewal form itself, so you don't have to worry about remembering all of these instructions if you simply read the instructions and follow along.
