If you have been an ACDA Active member for at least 10 years, you may become a Life member by paying $3,000 in dues (lump sum, or paid over a maximum of 15 years, at least $200 per year). While you are paying, you are a Paying Life member.
Life and Paying Life members have all of the benefits of Active membership, and once the payment is completed, are never charged for membership dues again. If you wish to begin a Paying Life membership, please contact the national office ( or 405-232-8161, ext. 110) so that your eligibility can be confirmed and your new category established.
Please note: As a Paying Life member you are expected to pay your annual installment of at least $200 per year, as you would member dues. Your membership will lapse if you miss your annual dues date. While some grace period may be allowed, at the discretion of staff, if you’re Paying Life membership lapses for six months or more, your payment total will reset at $3,000 should you choose to reactivate your membership.
