Q. I renewed later in the year.  Why does my membership expire on 12/31?

A: AMIA's memberships are calendar year memberships.  Memberships purchased prior to 11/1 will expire on 12/31 of the year they were purchased*. If your intention is for the membership to be for the following member year, please contact us at and we will make that adjustment for you.

If you plan to take advantage of the member rate to one of AMIA's meetings, you must have an active membership at the time of the meeting. Refunds for membership must be received within 7 days and will be assessed a $50 service fee. If a membership is purchased in conjunction with a meeting registration and the meeting has passed, a refund is not applicable.

*This does not apply to Member Advantage and Trial Memberships.
