Membership Information

AAIDD/AAIDDTX Membership Renewal Schedule:
The Association operates on a calendar year beginning January 1 and ending December 31. The annual membership cycle corresponds with that cycle.


The dues billing cycle for sending membership renewal notices is as follows:



It is important to note that the Association will accept membership dues at any time during the year, but the official ìdues billing cycle covers a 180-day period from September 1st through February 28th, thus giving a great deal of flexibility. Furthermore, in recognition of the need to support member recruitment activities, new member dues are prorated on a quarterly basis.

Membership & Sponsorship information and applications

The first renewal notice is mailed during the first week of September or approximately 120 days in advance of the expiration date, which is the industry standard.

The second renewal notice is mailed during the first week of December.

Dues are due on the last day of the year. However, no member is dropped from the active membership rolls until February 28 of the following year. This allows ample time to process renewals that are received early in the year.

We do not want to disrupt member services if it can be avoided.

The third renewal notice is mailed the second week of April.

The fourth and final notice is mailed in mid-June.
