M E M B E R S H I P Dues Renewal Open at MAA Website Dues invoices for 2019 membership were mailed in mid- November. Dues renewal for 2019 is open online at MassArbor.org. To renew a membership online, you must use the member’s login. Office managers cannot renew dues for the company or colleagues by using their own personal login. However, compa- nies are welcome to mail a check in one combined amount to cover the dues for the primary member holder and any affiliates. Please just indicate to whom the payment applies. Memberships expire on December 31st. Expired members may still access the website but will be prompted to pay membership dues before registering for events. Change is good! This is the time of year for database changes and clean up. If your contact information or employer has changed, please reach out to me at the MAA office – CMartin@MassArbor.org. Reminders about events or recertification are only effective if we’re able to reach you! M A T T E R S Take a moment on your next snow day to update your MassArbor.org account.
