Procedure to register new Life Members at NACAA

Registering a new Life Member should be handled thru the state association as each association determines Life Member eligibility since every state is different on who they allow as members (Active & life).

The person (perhaps the Secretary or Treasurer) in the respective state who updates the state membership in the NACAA Member database can convert someone to Life Member online, then submit a onetime $50 check to Scott Hawbaker, NACAA Executive Director. This can be done during the normal annual renewal process or at any time during the year they want to do it.

It is necessary for the NACAA Executive Director to receive the check and "clear" their dues online. Then he sends the check to the NACAA Treasurer. When the state person updates dues for someone it generate a dues submission form which is to be sent with the money. It shows that it needs to be mailed to the NACAA Executive Director (along with how much is due).
