Pay Your Dues

 

The AACO dues rate for 2020 will continue to be $200, with a $50 late fee for payments made after March 1st.  PLEASE NOTE, our bylaws now set June 30 as the deadline for paying dues.  After that date, members in arrears will be in a suspended category.

IMPORTANT NOTICE -- Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the $50 late fee which became effective on March 1 has been waived.  A decision about the June 30 final deadline will be made at a later date, but rest assured that AACO wants to support our members, many of whom are experiencing significant challenges at the present time.  If you wish to voluntarily pay the late fee, we certainly would be grateful.  Simply include that amount in the "voluntary donation" field on the online dues form.

The AACO and your committees are working very hard to deliver services to the members that are of value, and AACO leaders very much appreciate your membership!

Notes and Additional Information

When you pay your dues online, the form also will ask you to verify some information for the AACO membership directory.  By reviewing these items, we will be able to maintain accurate data and accommodate your preferences for what is published in the directory.

Also, your dues invoice (online and paper) will offer you the opportunity to purchase a printed membership directory which will be mailed to you.  The printed 2020 directory will be sent out in August.  Of course, the online directory is accessible 24/7 for members who log-in to the AACO website.

Finally, as in the past, all members may make a voluntary donation to the AACO.  Space is provided on the dues form for this purpose.
