In 2021 the ACS Council voted and approved a new and improved ACS membership model that includes more flexible choices for all ACS members. We are excited to announce that the implementation of those changes is underway.
In consultation with ACS governance and staff, we have rolled out changes in how we handle lapsed memberships. Starting in April 2022, members who do not pay their dues are automatically moved to the Community Associate category after 60 days. The Community Associate category does not provide "Member" status and does not include the right to vote. It does, however, provide a vastly improved and streamlined experience for restoring a small handful of benefits for these individuals, and provides ACS a means to keep in contact for much longer. Best of all, we have a simplified upgrade process that lets them self-serve to reactivate their memberships and receive a complete 12-month term.
With the launch of the new membership packages and the opportunities this provides the ACS community, we have a planned series of communications and training rolling out in the coming weeks to further explain the membership changes, impacts, and status in depth and respond to any and all additional questions from our members. You may also consider registering and attending an upcoming Town Hall meeting and visiting our FAQ for additional details.
