The NACVSO Membership Committee Members are no longer responsible for printing and mailing membership cards to NACVSO Members.  Each member can now log-in and from the menu on the right side of the page, select 'Membership Card' and it will allow you to print your own card.  If you have forgotten your password, we also have a 'Forgot Password' link that you can use to reset your password.  CLICK HERE to contact us if you have questions.  Have you ever wondered what you might do with those annoying fake plastic credit cards or membership cards that you get in the mail?  Here is an idea.  Print your membership card and glue it to one of those plastic cards instead of throwing them away.  Your membership card will last much longer if you do.

State Membership

Yearly member state dues must be received by the Treasurer by October 1.
Renewal invoices will be mailed by the Treasurer to the state associations by September 1.
Any dues not received by December 31 will be considered delinquent and all privileges revoked (i.e., lower individual membership dues, charter status and all voting privileges).
Should a state become delinquent, current individual members will be billed at the higher non-member state rate.
