When I join WCAA, am I automatically enrolled in my local chapter (or vice versa)?
No - WCAA urges you to also join your local chapter to gain full access to professional development and networking opportunities in your geographic area. To join a chapter, contact the leadership of the local chapter you would like to join. For a complete listing of our local chapters nationwide, you may click on our Chapters page

Once I join, when will I receive my new member kit?
First, you will receive an email with important information. Your membership package will be mailed to you within four weeks of joining WCAA.

 
I joined WCAA last year, when do my national dues become payable for this year?
Membership in the WCAA is on a calendar year basis and runs through December 31st. Renewal notices are sent in early November and must be paid by January 31st to remain current. Members not paid by midnight on January 31 will be lapsed. 

 
If I have employees can they attend meetings? Do they have to pay national/local dues?
Both your National and Local dues are on a company basis - not an individual basis.  So when your company joins, all the employees are also eligible for the benefits and may attend meetings and events at the member cost. Special events or activities may require a per person charge (e.g., Holiday Luncheon, etc.)

 
How do I update my member record?
You can update your member information here on WCAA National's website.  You will need your login and password to make updates.
