Membership Policy Changes

Our renewal policies have changed since 2016 to better serve the membership.

Renewal Dates

Until early 2016 all members were on a quarterly renewal basis. In July 2016 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 or converting), and their next renewal dues will be prorated by applying a credit for the truncated prior year membership.

Membership Cards

New cards are only be issued to new members, or when replacement cards are requested. This means that membership cards will no longer be reissued at renewal. A fee may be applied for replacement cards.

Formation Credentials

Until mid-2016, NATA issued a separate FAST card to eligible members annually. FAST credentials are now shown on our membership cards (there is a single, combination NATA membership/FAST card). This means that eligible Formation members continue to receive a new membership card annually to reflect their updated FAST status. 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). A fee may be applied for replacement cards, or to expedite card delivery.

Late Fees

A late fee is now charged when members renew after their expiration date. This fee will automatically be added to the balance due at the time of renewal.
