Default $58 only till the end of the year?

Just got my card, did my $58 only get me 1/2 year? It says it expires 12-31-06?

This is copied from an obscure document among the AMA documents. Info is not that easy to find, but I knew it was there somewhere.

WHAT: Dues policy for new, first time, OPEN full category members.

WHY: To clarify the length of time your membership is valid, according to the
date of your dues payment. This is necessary since AMA membership
works on a calendar year basis starting January 1st, rather than the date of
your dues payment.

HOW: FIRST QUARTER: If you join AMA as a first time, new member from
January 1st through March 31st, you will do so at the full, open rate.

SECOND QUARTER: If you join AMA as a first time, new member from
April 1st through June 30th, you will pay the full, open rate. The
Following year, your renewal notice will reflect a 25% reduction in dues.

THIRD QUARTER: If you join AMA from July 1st through September
30th, you will pay the full, open rate. The Following year, your
renewal notice will reflect a 50% reduction in dues.

FOURTH QUARTER: If you join AMA from October 1st through
December 31st, you will pay the full open rate. You will receive
membership for the remainder of that year, plus membership for the
following year.

Aren't you glad?

So no pro-rating if you dont re-up next year.
They could work on retention by making it a 25 year wait on getting the initial year pro-rated .

Wow....that was really hidden... right at the bottom of the application!!

Insurance coverage is effective on the date of receipt at AMA Headquarters of a properly completed application and correct dues payment. Membership ends each year on December 31, regardless of the date a member application is received. Applications received after October 1 will be valid for the remainder of that year and all of the following year.

Yes, that is there, but teookie joined before October 1.

As far as sarcasm is concerned, my wife is the Ultimate Master.

Yours in love, peace and friendship,
