Reminder for Chapters & Districts: Changing Dues Prices Online

As a friendly reminder to Chapter and District Leaders, below is a brief tutorial on how to update the dues prices for your chapter or district for the upcoming year. If your chapter or district does not wish to change your dues prices, there is nothing else you need to do. 

As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change your dues (Chapter or District) prices. 

Guide to Changing Dues Rates

The following is a guide to changing dues rates if your chapter or district has voted to change the price of dues. A similar tutorial can be found online for:

Authorized officers for making changes to chapter level dues prices are a Chapter President, Secretary or Treasurer. 

Authorized officers for making changes to district level dues prices are a District President, Secretary or Treasurer. 

Due to the fact that we create invoices well in advance of due date, the following policy will be in effect:


In order to implement dues rate changes that are expected to be effective 1/1/2018, the changes MUST be made before 11/1/2017 (more than 60 days in advance as has always been our practice). We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices.

Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the computer system.
