When Does My Membership Expire?

NECPA Membership for organizations runs for the calendar year. This means that whether your organization pays membership dues in January or September, you are paying for the current calendar year unless that year has previously been paid. All organization memberships expire on December 31st of the calendar year.

Memberships renewal reminders go out 30 days before expiration. This encourages all members to renew before their membership expires at the end of the year. This is done to ensure that members are paid in full before they register for the expo in January each year. If you try to register in January, but your membership expired on 12/31, then you would not be eligible for the member discount with your registration. To avoid this confusion for the membership, we encourage renewals in December before the expo.

There are subsequent renewal reminders sent out 14 days before expiration, as well as 14 days after expiration, and 30 days after expiration. We want to be sure that we catch everyone in the normal window where they would normally have had their membership processed so that they can take advantage of their member discount for expo registration.
