Dues Increase Approved

At the last meeting of the Board of Directors on August 9, 2013 the directors approved a membership dues increase to be effective starting November 1, 2013.

A financial analysis conducted in July covering the period from 2009 through 2012 revealed that the cost of basic membership services exceeded dues income received by more than 18 percent.

Starting November 1, 2013 membership dues will be at the following rates:

New Enrollment – $30
Renewal – $30
Reinstatement – $30
Early Renewal Discount – $24

The membership dues billing for September and October 2013 will still be at the current rate of $24 (new, renewal and reinstatement) and $20 (early discount). We will modify our dues billing process and create new forms (hard copy) to reflect the new rates when appropriate.

You may take advantage of a considerable savings if you wish to renew your membership at the lower rate even if your membership renews after October 31, 2013. The HMAUS membership enrollment process allows you to renew your membership dues for up to five years. Each additional year is at the “Early Discount Rate.”

Use the following link to submit an early renewal at the current (lower) dues rates now:
