Note that the AACA national dues will be changing for 2018. At the national board meeting held in Independence, Missouri, the board voted to increase the annual dues by $5. This change will increase the annual membership renewal from $35 to $40. Note that this is the first increase in 10 years. The increased dues will help the AACA to continue to offer great benefits and services amidst the rising costs due to inflation.
