Q. What is the “Acknowledgement of Payment Program” when paying dues online?

A. In an online dues payment, the member will be asked to check a box that acknowledges they have read the terms of the payment program.

By providing us your credit card information, you hereby agree that ADHA may automatically renew your membership each year by charging the applicable membership dues fee directly to your credit card. You will be notified of the renewal 30 days prior and then your membership fee will be charged on an annual or quarterly basis according to the manner you have indicated. Please ensure we have updated credit card information so the renewal may be processed. If you do not want to have your dues automatically renewed each year, you may opt-out at any time.

Q. Why is the “Acknowledgement of Payment Program” required when paying dues online?

A. For those members who renew online their annual membership (whether paying the full amount or quarterly) they will be in "evergreen". So next year on May 1st (for summer cycle) they will get an email invoice that lets them know that we currently have them in evergreen, and if they don't want to us to charge their card on July 1st - to email us back (or potentially opt out online, or call, or write). Then we'll send another email invoice on June 1st with the same message. If the member chooses to opt-out, they will be included in subsequent dues mailings.

ADHA wants to give 60 days notice before we ever charge a member’s credit card. The objective is to give every opportunity for an electronic or "green" transaction before we start the printing and postage process.

ADHA is committed to moving in a “green” direction, reducing costs that could be put to better use and borrowing from the best practices in the consumer world.
