WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Timing is everything!Our membership year runs from July 1 - June 30. Since we do not pro-rate dues for those individuals who join during the membership year, the best times to apply for membership are before November/December and again beginning in April. (Renewal invoices are sent to members in late April each year, no matter when your application is received and approved)
Submitting your application for membership in April will provide you with three additional months (April, May, June) of membership and benefits.
Back issues of the journals that accompany each member category can be requested at any time. Access to the "Members Only" section of the AES website is provided once payment has been processed.
The review by our Membership Committee takes two to four weeks, then an electronic "official" welcome is sent to all applicants indicating membership has been approved.
