September 5 - October 25, 2017
Is your state ready for Sing Up?
What to expect
Your baseline for a starting number is changing this year. Instead of June 30 as in previous years, it will be your state's membership total on Oct. 31, 2016. We are working to get that number added to your state president's dashboard with our new association management system that launches on Sept. 5. Contact Sundra Flansburg if you would like to know that number before then. Your state's goal for the fall 2017 membership drive: Add as many new members as you can through Oct. 25, and keep the members you already have.

Decide about participating in the Student Membership Initiative
States have the option to offer this program or not, and can include caps on the total number of students who can participate in it. Those states that opt-in offer first-year student dues of just $5! If states choose to participate, they subsidize those $5 student membership with a $15 state contribution on each, which is match with a $15 national contribution.
