Renewing Your Membership

We’re making renewing your ACS membership even easier! Beginning April 27, 2021, ACS converted to a new member management system. If you had not renewed prior to this date, you were sent by email a newly generated invoice for your 2021 dues. Just click “pay now” to pay by credit card or “pay later” to pay by check.

All ACS Individual members and Organizational Member Primary Contacts should have received an email direct from Quickbooks with a link to view your invoice and renew. If you did not, please contact us.

FAQs on Renewing

Why am I getting an error message when I try to pay with my Visa or American Express card?
We have just been made aware of this issue, and we are working with the payment processor to resolve it as soon as possible. We will post an update here once the problem is fixed, or email us at [email protected] and tell us you would like to be notified when the system is ready to accept Amex and Visa payments again. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

What is included in that renewal invoice email?
The email includes a quick link to pay via credit card as well as a PDF version of the invoice attached.

How can I pay for my membership renewal?
Click the link in the invoice email to view and pay for your ACS membership by credit card.

Can I pay by mailing in a check?
Yes, but please note that because the ACS Management Team is working remotely paying by mail will cause a delay in your renewal being processed. If you’d still like to pay this way please print the PDF invoice attached to the email sent and mail it with a check, payable to American Cheese Society to: American Cheese Society, P.O. Box 3406, Englewood, CO 80155.

What if I didn’t receive my membership invoice renewal email or need it to be re-sent?
If you are a company, please check with your organization’s Primary Contact as they should have received it. Please also check your spam or junk mail. If you still don’t see it, or need it to be re-sent, contact the ACS management team.

What if I need to change the membership level that I’m renewing at?
You can change your membership level simply by filling the membership join form again. This will void the current invoice. If you have difficulty, please feel free to contact the ACS management team for assistance.

I want to renew but have barriers, what are my options?
We believe it is more crucial than ever for us to support our members and make sure they have access to ACS resources, education, and networking opportunities. If you feel you have a barrier to renewing, please contact the ACS management team to talk through your options.

Can I forward the invoice to my accounting department or someone else at my company for payment?
Yes. The invoice email can be forwarded to anyone and paid via the pay-now link.

How can I check who is my organization’s Primary Contact?
If you are not the Primary Contact and aren’t sure who it might be at your company, you can request this information by contacting the ACS management team.

When does my membership expire?
ACS’s membership dues are based on the calendar year and run from January 1 through December 31 annually. To take advantage of a full calendar year of benefits without any break in service, we encourage you to renew your ACS membership as soon as you receive your renewal notice.
