Journal and NFSS Dues
New memberships and late renewals (expired memberships) received by the 15th day of any month immediately preceding a journal issue will receive four consecutive issues, beginning with the issue immediately following the month they joined. For dues received after the cutoff dates, the first issue will be the next issue later. Cutoff dates to receive the next published issue are as follows: the 15th day of December, March, June and September. If a member’s dues remain unpaid beyond the twelve month membership period, said membership shall cease. Should a member’s membership cease and be renewed at a later date, the membership shall begin at that payment date. To retain the membership number and related data, said membership must be renewed within (60) sixty days of expiration.
