All members of record at that time will be notified with the information on file about joining or renewing with NASO.

If the information matches a current subscription, NASO will prorate your existing membership and issue a credit/refund for any unused months.
Q. Will NASO send me a renewal notice next year?
A. No. NASO will notify AOA. AOA will contact all members at renewal time. AOA must provide your information to NASO to receive the discount. Going forward you will be notified by AOA when your renewal is due.
