Membership Fee Renewal Process

The membership year is from January 1 to December 31. You must renew your fees starting January 1 in order to be considered a member in good standing. Late fees of $25 are added February 28. If you do not pay by March 31, the ASPB will remove your name from the register of members, and you are no longer a member of ASPB. You will be required to reapply to ASPB under current requirements if you wish to be a member once again. This involves paying the application fee and having your documents sent to the ASPB office to reviewed.
