Membership Policy Changes

Our dues policy changed in 2016 to better serve and manage the membership.

Renewal Dates

Until early 2016 all members were on a quarterly renewal basis. In July we began to shift formation members to a year-end renewal schedule to align with the issuance of annual FAST credentials at year-end. Some Regular members may also find themselves on a year-end renewal. New Regular and Basic members will renew on their join anniversary (annually). New Formation memberships will be adjusted to a year-end renewal (after joining or converting), and their first renewal dues will be prorated.

Membership Cards

New cards are only be issued to new members, or when replacement cards are requested. This means that membership cards will no longer be reissued at renewal.

Formation credentials


Until mid-2016, NATA issued a separate FAST card to eligible members annually. Starting in 2017, FAST credentials have been shown on our membership cards (there is a single, combination NATA membership/FAST card). This means that eligible Formation members continue to receive a new membership card annually to reflect their updated FAST credentials. Formation membership cards will be reissued only to formation members who have a valid, current Formation Proficiency Report (FPR) on file, and whose dues are current. Formation members are responsible for submitting valid FPRs in a timely manner (view our FPR Policy).
