Pay Your Dues 


The AACO dues rate for 2021 is $205, with a $50 late fee for payments made beginning on April 14, 60 days after the official notice date.  As approved by the membership at the 2019 annual business meeting, $5 increase on dues has been assessed to cover the increasing cost of financial management such as credit card transactions and other banking fees imposed on our organization,   PLEASE NOTE, our bylaws set June 30 as the deadline for paying dues.  After that date, members in arrears will be in a suspended category.

The AACO and your committees are working very hard to deliver services to the members that are of value, and AACO leaders very much appreciate your membership!

Notes and Additional Information

When you pay your dues online, the form also will ask you to verify some information for the AACO membership directory.  By reviewing these items, we will be able to maintain accurate data and accommodate your preferences for what is published in the directory.

Also, your dues invoice (online and paper) will offer you the opportunity to purchase a printed membership directory which will be mailed to you.  The printed 2021 directory will be sent out in August.  Of course, the online directory is accessible 24/7 for members who log-in to the AACO website.

Finally, as in the past, all members may make a voluntary donation to the AACO.  Space is provided on the dues form for this purpose.
