Why Auto-Renewals & Monthly Installments?
- Convenience: National can focus time on bigger initiatives than renewal. Chapters don’t have to send renewal reminders. Members set the auto-renewal and forget it.
- Automation: Members are a part of the renewal process unless they cancel -perpetual membership. There’s less legwork for staff. Members don’t have to mail in a check or pay online.
- Predictable revenue stream: National benefits from shared information in real-time. There’s more support for volunteers/staff. It’s more affordable for members -it’s a set fee they count on paying like house utilities.
- Remove decision points: Provides a great opportunity for National to share throughout the year the value members receive. Staff spend less time sending renewal notices. Member don’t have to worry about remembering to pay.
