BHS Member Center: Chapter Profile - How to Update or Change Dues Prices

As a general reminder, it is not necessary to contact Society Headquarters to change or update your chapter dues prices.  

The following is a guide to changing dues rates if your chapter has voted to change the price of dues.

Authorized leaders for making changes to chapter level dues prices:

  • Chapter - President, Secretary, or Treasurer
  • District - President, Secretary, or Treasurer

BHS creates invoices in advance of the due date of payment. It is our policy that in order to implement dues rate changes, they must be made at least 60 days prior to the new calendar year.  

Attempted changes with a start date within 60 days will not be accepted by the Member Center system.  

SPECIAL NOTE: If you want your Dues to Change as of 01/01/2018

In order to implement dues rate changes that are expected to be effective 1/1/2018, the changes MUST be made before 11/1/2017 (more than 60 days in advance). We will be running invoices for January in November and the amounts must be in the system prior to running the invoices.

c. Effective Date- Our system will automatically restrict you to select a date that is at least 60 days away.  

d. Status- If you do not have any members nor do you expect a member classification to be active, you may select “Inactive”, though we strongly suggest that all statuses by marked Active and have dues amounts assigned, in case a member of your chapter in the future falls into that category.  

7. After submitting, the new information will display on the Historical Dues tab (under the respective year) with the effective date as designated. This will automatically update our invoicing and future member additions for your chapter.
