Membership Renewal Information - PLEASE READ

Renewal Notices and Invoices are being emailed directly to all current members via Quick Books Online (QBO). If you wish to renew your membership, please review the information below:

Members will be receiving an emailed invoice through QBO for their 2019 membership dues. Follow the prompts in that email and you can pay for your dues online by entering your payment information (you can still mail a check to the Sec/Treas P.O. Box). If you feel comfortable with how to make an online payment, I would still encourage you to read through the FAQ below as it may apply to your agency or a particular question you may have.

Note: There is no longer a renewal form to fill out for your membership
