How much is the Chapter Membership fee?

Each member of the Chapter is required to contribute $50 to the Chapter Treasury annually for funding its events. Chapter fees are due when your ACSS membership fees are due.

How much are the Chapter Membership and ACSS Membership fees altogether?

If you are not yet an ACSS member, you can sign up for both ACSS membership and Chapter membership by clicking here. Both memberships cost $245 annually. Once you have signed up for ACSS Membership, the system will automatically ask you whether or not you also want to become a Chapter Member.

If the Chapter has not yet launched, do I still have to pay the Chapter fee?

Not immediately, no! Chapter fees are not due until the date of the Chapter Launch. If you are an ACSS member, just click here and choose “invoice me” at check out.

From what date does the Chapter Membership begin to run?

If you are not a member, both your ACSS membership and Chapter Membership will begin to run at the same time.

If you are a member, then your Chapter fee will be prorated in the first year depending on from when to when your particular ACSS membership runs. After the first year, your ACSS membership and Chapter memberships will renew in sync.

I’m not yet sure if I want to be an ACSS Member, can I just attend the Chapter Launch?

Yes you can! If you are not yet a member, you can attend a Chapter Launch for a $25 fee. If you decide to become an ACSS member, this will be deducted from your overall membership fee.
