COVID-19 Relief for NYSOA Members

As part of its COVID-19 relief efforts, the AOA is waiving all membership dues for two months. The NYSOA has decided to match this relief and is offering an optional waiver of all NYSOA dues for two months. How this impacts you personally will depend on your current status and payment schedule for the year. A summary of the options are listed below. 

Please contact Laura Lyman, NYSOA Director of Member Services, with any questions or concerns.


COVID-19 Relief Dues Waiver Program

If you have already paid your 2020 membership dues in full, the AOA relief will be applied as a credit toward your 2021 AOA membership dues. If you elect to also receive the 2-month discount on your NYSOA dues, this will be applied as a credit toward your 2021 membership dues as well.

If you have made a partial payment toward your 2020 dues, your outstanding balance will be adjusted to reflect the AOA discount and, should you elect to receive it, the NYSOA discount.

If you have set up an automatic payment on a monthly basis, you may choose to suspend your payments for the months of April and May -or- the months of May and June. If your card has already been charged for the month of April and you would like relief in April and May, the NYSOA will process a refund of your April payment at your request.

If you would prefer to continue monthly payments as scheduled, the amount charged to your card will be adjusted to reflect the AOA and optional NYSOA discount. The discount will be applied evenly across all remaining payments.

If you have set up an automatic payment on quarterly basis, you may choose to suspend your 2nd quarter payment, and your remaining payments for the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2020 will be adjusted accordingly. As with monthly payers, if your card has already been charged for Q2, the NYSOA will process a refund at your request.

If you would prefer to continue quarterly payments as scheduled, the amount charged to your card will be adjusted to reflect the AOA and optional NYSOA discount. The discount will be applied evenly across all remaining payments.
