ACB life membership is a much honored status worth achieving in our organization. While life membership dues are hefty, $1,000, the dues can be paid in up to five annual installments of $200, which is within the ability to pay of even our humblest members and supporters. The installment plan amounts to 55 cents per day -- less than the cost of a can of soda, and the new life member receives his or her life membership plaque and an invitation to a life membership reception hosted by the ACB president during the national conference and convention upon payment of the first dues installment.
In addition to individuals who step up to become ACB life members, I respectfully urge our chapters, state and special-interest affiliates to consider seriously whether there is an individual in your organization who deserves to be recognized in a very special way by your chapter or affiliate presenting that person with an ACB life membership. As a life member myself, I look forward to welcoming the 2010 class of life members at our Phoenix, Ariz., national convention this coming July.
Individuals wishing to become part of ACB's life membership program or chapter or affiliate leaders seeking information about or clarification regarding ACB's life membership program should contact Lane Waters in the Minnesota office during normal business hours at 1-800-866-3242.
