Attention: Leslie Schmerler 

If you require a paper form or your agency has specific requirements for invoicing, contact

Note to renewing members: 


If your membership expired on December 31, January 1 is your renewal date.  Your membership anniversary date cannot change; your membership expiration date will be the same as the prior year regardless of when you renew.  So, to get the most of your membership dollar, renew as close to January 1 as possible.


For example, if your membership runs January-December, even if you renew in May, as an existing member you will keep your January 1 renewal date.


However, if you are a new member or someone who has not been a member for at least 2 years, dues paid after April 15 would qualify you for a July 1 – June 30 membership. If you are renewing your membership and would like to take advantage of the July 1 - June 30 member year, contact 


Please contact us at with any questions.
