Membership Policy

The Executive Committee passed a policy on non-payment of dues via email on January 13, 2017 regarding delinquent dues of the membership.

Members who have not paid dues by December 31 for the previous calendar year will be suspended from the listserv and website privileges but will retain voting rights. After two full consecutive years of non-payment, members will be dropped from AADCAP membership. To be reinstated, members must pay half the previous two years’ dues and the full current year's dues. Every attempt will be made to notify the affected members. The Executive Committee can be contacted in special cases if notified before the final termination date.
