HWA Dues Payment
HWA dues are collected annually during the months of January and February. If you are accessing this page from the nav bar link in the Members Only area of the site any time after April 1, then your dues are paid and you are in good standing.
You will receive an email from the HWA asking you to renew. The link to your HWA member account will be in it. Please follow this link to renew. If you did not receive such an email, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get a new one sent to you.
Please note the following items concerning the timing of your renewal:
- After January 31, if we have still not received your renewal, you will be removed from good standing. This means that, although you are still technically a member of HWA, your access to HWA services will be suspended until your dues have been paid. (You will receive no further HWA mailings or emailings, your name will be removed from the HWA Directory, your access to the “Members Only” web site will be withdrawn, and your voting privileges for the Bram Stoker Awards will be suspended). You may still pay dues without reapplying. If for some reason you have not received a dues notice, please email email@example.com.
- After March 1, if your dues remain unpaid, you are no longer a member of HWA and you must re-apply for membership. Note that you return at your previous Membership Status unless, of course, you can show appropriate publication credits to change your status to a higher level.
If you are a returning member looking to renew or rejoin, please note that proration does not apply to anyone who has been a member within the past two years. If you fit that description, you must pay full annual dues in order to reactivate your membership, regardless of today’s date.
Your electronic payment will be submitted to HWA’s current Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
