AACE International Members Called Up for Active Duty May Suspend Payment of Dues
March 22, 2011
AACE International members who have been called up for active duty in the reserves or similar military obligation may request that their dues obligations be deferred until their tour of duty is completed. In order to qualify, the member must have been a paid member in good standing at the time they were called into service. After providing verification of a call to active duty, the member may request that their membership be placed in “on duty status” until they return to civilian status. While in “On Duty Status”, the member will not be required to pay dues and any balance of dues paid for that year may be credited toward his reinstatement.
For example, if a member is called up to active duty on April 1, 2011 and has paid his 2011 dues, he or she may request that the membership be moved to On Duty Status for the duration of the tour of duty. If the tour lasts ten months and the member returned to civilian status on February 1, 2012, for example, the member would request his status be converted back to active member status and he would be credited with the nine month’s balance of membership he had paid in 2011 and would only have to pay the two-month pro-rated balance of the 2012 membership year to be reinstated. To request the On Duty Status, contact the membership department at AACE International headquarters.
