Processing Time
While DSA is a growing organization, it is still run by just a few volunteers that are spread around the U.S.  Membership applications are processed as a batch about once a month.  Usually near the end of the month. Shirley does her best to send out an email when the application is received, but sometimes things get busy or Shirley is traveling.

Once your membership is processed, your membership card will be mailed to you.  You are considered a DSA member as soon as your application and payment are received by DSA.  If you need to verify your membership, you can email Shirley Conley, our Membership Coordinator.   Thank you for your patience.

Bounced Check Policy
Checks submitted to DSA that bounce will incur a $40 fee and the original amount will need to be submitted as quickly as possible. If the check was for membership, the membership(s) will be suspended until payment is received. If the checks are for badges, no further badges will be sent until the situation is rectified and the bounced check fee is paid. If a second bounced check is submitted by the same person, no further checks will be accepted from that person and only money orders may be used. If the amount and fee are not paid in a timely manner, the issue is likely to be sent to a collection agency and any expenses incurred will be the responsibility of the person who wrote the original check.

Is Your Membership Current?
Annual DSA membership dues need to be renewed 1 year from date of initial membership to continue as an active DSA member. Once you become a member, you can check below to see when your dues are due.
