Membership Policy Changes
Our dues policy changed in 2016 to better serve and manage the membership.
Until mid-2016 all members were on a quarterly renewal basis. In July we began to shift formation members to a year-end renewal schedule to align with the issuance of annual FAST credentials at year-end. Some Regular members may also find themselves on a year-end renewal. New Regular and Basic members will renew on their join anniversary (annually). New Formation memberships will be adjusted to a year-end renewal (after joining), and their first renewal dues will be prorated.
New cards will be issued during renewals until September 2017, but thereafter will only be issued to new members, or when replacement cards are requested. After September 2017, membership cards will no longer be reissued annually.
Until mid-2016, NATA issued a separate FAST card to eligible members annually. Starting in 2017, FAST credentials will be shown on our membership cards (there will be a single, combination NATA membership/FAST card). This means that eligible Formation members will continue to receive a new membership card annually to reflect their updated FAST credentials. Formation membership cards will be reissued only to formation members who have a valid, current Formation Proficiency Report (FPR) on file, and whose dues are current. Formation members are responsible for submitting valid FPRs in a timely manner (view our FPR Policy
