FAQs

Q. Why did you make the change?
A. To create a more affordable avenue to AAA membership.

Q. How did the AAA decide to make these changes?
A. The new model was created after 18 months of review and with extensive input from current/former members, the Section Assembly, the Executive Board, and outside experts.

Q. What happens if I am a joint member?
A. Your membership will automatically transition to the professional member category upon renewal. If that category is not appropriate, you can make adjustments during the renewal process. Your membership dues will now be based on your personal annual income and not your spouse/partner.

Q. If the new rates go into effect in January 2020, why did AAA launch the new rates as of October 1, 2019?
A. Members who have a January 31, 2020 expiration date generally begin renewing their membership in October. To be fair to those who chose to renew early, we launched the new rates in October.

Q. I recently renewed before you launched the new dues model. Can I receive a retroactive refund of the difference?
A. The new dues rates take effect as of January 2020, so the next time you renew your dues it will be at these rates.
