Effective June 1, 2016, LASA is implementing rolling membership dates (including current 2016 memberships) to facilitate the process of paper proposal submission (due in September) and Congress registration (due in March–April of the following year) under one membership cycle.
This means that an individual membership will be effective for a year after the payment is processed. If a membership is not renewed before the year ends, the new expiration date of the membership will be one year after the renewal payment is received.
The following specific examples and FAQs should explain the process.
How will I know when it is time to renew my membership? Before your membership is due to expire, when you log in to a member exclusive area of the LASA website, a message will be displayed prompting you to renew your membership. LASA will also email you reminders when the time to renew your membership draws closer.
I am a current LASA member, with a membership expiration date of September 30, 2016. How can I make sure my membership will always have an expiration date of September 30? If you renew your membership each year before September 30, your expiration date will always be September 30. You will receive renewal reminders upon logging in to the LASA website as well as via email.
