Member Renewal FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
Membership in the Public Diplomacy Council of America renews every year on January 1. Dues can be paid at the first notification from PDCA toward the end of the year, but if not paid by the announced time limit, the member will be dropped from our roles and will cease to receive communications from PDCA.
Life members of our legacy organizations, the Public Diplomacy Council and the Public Diplomacy Association of America, will not receive an invoice. They are considered paid up for life. The Public Diplomacy Council of America does not offer Life membership.
Dues are payable upon the renewal date. Our membership plans are Full, Associate and Rising Professional. Every member will receive via email a notice and invoice priced according to their plan.
Those members who paid dues to join the PDCA on October 1, 2023 or afterward will be considered paid through 2024.
Members who failed to pay dues during 2023, but pay for 2024, will retain their membership.
How to pay
- Directly, through invoice notification. Members will receive an automated message with a link that will allow them to pay their dues directly and get an invoice for their records. The message also offers the option to drop membership, which will take immediate effect. Invoices may go to the member’s spam; check before asking about the invoice.
Other ways to pay
- Directly, on the Members page: Members can pay by logging into their member account and viewing their statement and invoices.
- By check: Dues can be paid by a check sent to the Association’s postal address at 2401 Calvert St NW, Suite 902 Washington, DC 20008-2678. Address the envelope to Bob Heath, Executive Director.
Membership is not tax deductible. Donations are deductible; PDCA is registered as a 501 (c) 3 organization.
