Renewing Your Membership

We’re making renewing your ACS membership even easier! Everything will be processed through Quickbooks, letting you receive, print, and forward invoices to anyone in your company, pay directly with a credit card, or request an alternative payment method if needed.

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.

Please review our FAQs below for the 2021 renewal period or our step by step guide here.

Also, any member that renews by November 30 at or above their 2020 membership level will:

  • Be entered to win complimentary full conference 2021 registrations for themselves and two additional colleagues or peers
  • Have first access to book 2021 conference hotels at our special discounted rate for attendees

FAQs on Renewing

How will I receive my membership renewal invoice this year?
An invoice with a quick link to pay was emailed on October 1 to the Primary Contact at each organization and to Individual members. It will have come from Quickbooks directly.

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. View our how to renew guide here for step by step visuals.

How can I pay for my 2021 membership renewal?
Click the link in the invoice email to view and pay for your 2021 ACS membership via credit card or bank transfer.

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 large delay in your renewal being processed. If you’d still like to pay this way please print the PDF invoice attached to the Quickbooks email sent and mail it with a check, payable to American Cheese Society to: American Cheese Society, 2696 S Colorado Blvd. Ste. 570, Denver, CO 80222

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?
Contact the ACS management team BEFORE paying your invoice. We can adjust and resend the invoice to reflect the proper level.

I want to renew but have barriers, what are my options?
With our industry in a state of crisis, 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 from Quickbooks can be forwarded to anyone and paid via the quick 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 2020 membership expire and the 2021 membership start?
ACS’s membership dues are based on the calendar year and run from January 1 through December 31 annually. In order 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.
