IMPORTANT MESSAGE 

Regarding RIASP Membership

RIASP Memberships run for the school year September 1st through August 31st (this will be your renewal.)  All members are able to begin paying this renewal June 1st until August 31st when the school year ends. You are not obligated to pay until your membership expires on August 31st. 

Again, your current membership does not end until August 31st,  so you just need to make sure you renew online (or JOIN, if you are a new member), update all information and make your payment by September 1st for that current school year.  We do not need any PO information, that is for your use only.  A PO is not considered payment, only when a check is received will you become an ACTIVE - CURRENT RIASP Member. You may print your invoice to submit to your finance department when renewing or joining online. RIASP no longer sends paper invoices, each principal/member is required to do their membership online. 

Reminders about membership renewals go out in June, July and August.

We ask all of you to please review and fill in all of your contact information, emails, etc. as this is the only way for the nationals to get your updated information also. The more up to date you keep your information, the better it will be for you to receive all of the benefits RIASP has to offer. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email Sherry at sarliapuhacz@riasp.org.
