Credit Card Payments By Kim Wren, A.P.P. – Local Director
We’ve heard your request for credit card payments on-line! President Mara Stanfield has formed an Ad Hoc Committee to research the process of accepting credit card payments on-line. The Committee discovered our current credit company would have to establish a second account for an on-line payment program. Instead of just opening a second account, the committee thought it would be wise to explore all of our options. We are researching the benefits and total cost of an on-line program as well as establishing the policies that will need to be set.
ISM-Houston’s Board of Directors decided to move our dues payment to National when we realized their fees were equal to the credit card processing and transaction fees we are currently being charged by the credit card companies. More information soon to follow.
ISM-Houston has transitioned to the ISM Affiliate Dues Billing Program where our national organization will invoice ISM-Houston members for 2013 membership dues renewals. ISM-Houston membership is on an annual calendar year basis.
2013 renewal invoices are scheduled to be mailed on November 15, 2012. Members can log onto their ISM account through the ISM website and pay their annual bill online or mail a check to ISM in Tempe AZ. You can also update your contact information and profile preferences through the same area located in the membership section of the ISM national website found at the following link.
Members enrolled in the pre-paid Houston dinner meeting option will continue to be invoiced by ISM-Houston for this service. Invoices for the pre-paid dinner option will be mailed to the participating members on November 15, 2012.
