Frequently Asked Questions - AHLA Auto-Renew
Enjoy uninterrupted access to exclusive membership benefits.
Automatic renewal is a convenient way to annually renew your membership before it expires. Each year, your designated credit or debit card will be charged for membership dues, ensuring that you remain a member in good standing without the need to manually submit your payment and helping avoid any accidental lapses in membership.
Official Terms and Conditions
AHLA Auto-Renew corresponds to a member’s current membership level and corresponding rate in place at the time of renewal.
A form of payment is required, e.g., credit or debit card, ACH/EFT transaction. Should the payment method be declined, the member will be notified by email or by phone by an AHLA member service representative. Auto-Renew will be de-activated and re-enrollment will be required either by phone or online.
On or near your anniversary billing date each year, the payment will be processed. Members will receive an annual reminder email at least one month in advance of dues payment processing and receive an email receipt after the payment has been processed.
The AHLA provides three membership levels from which to choose. The AHLA reserves the right to change these annual membership dues rates. Any changes to membership dues will be posted on the Association’s website.
Auto-Renew is only available to those with a current balance due. The full amount of any current membership dues balance for members will be collected at the time of renewal. Auto-Renew will begin upon the start of the following membership year and be processed annually on or about your membership anniversary date.

Members may cancel auto-renew at any time by contacting AHLA Membership by email at [email protected] or by phone at (202) 833-1100. Following cancellation, members will continue to have access to AHLA benefits through the end of the current membership year if that year has been paid in full.
What is included?
Membership dues for the year.
When and how will I be charged?
If you have a balance due at the time of your enrollment in the auto-renewal process, the full amount for membership dues will be collected at that time. Automatic renewals will occur annually thereafter, on or about your anniversary billing date. You will receive an email receipt to confirm payment and your renewal status. All memberships are non-refundable once paid and members will have access to all member benefits through the end of their term.
Note: AHLA will not store your credit or debit card number or ACH/EFT information. Instead, AHLA will store an encrypted token that represents your form of payment. This issued token is only usable by AHLA and for this product.
Will I be notified?
Yes! You will receive a reminder at least one month in advance of your payment processing. At that time, you will be given the opportunity to opt out of the automatic renewal.
What if my card is no longer valid?
If we are unable to process your payment, you will be notified by email or phone by an AHLA member service representative. If your card is not current, auto-renew will be de-activated and re-enrollment will be required either online or by phone. Your membership will not be renewed until payment is received.
You can change your payment information yourself by visiting the My Membership page within MyAccount (or follow the link https://my.americanhealthlaw.org/My-Account/My-Membership).
Will my dues amount ever change?
AHLA provides three membership levels, each with a bundle of specific benefits. Dues rates do occasionally change, and you will be notified of your membership dues rates via an email notice to you approximately 30 days in advance of the payment being charged to your form of payment.
Where do I make changes or updates?
Visit My Membership to make changes or update. Members may also cancel auto-renew at any time by contacting the AHLA Membership team by email at [email protected] or by phone at (202) 833-1100.

I received a dues email showing an upcoming payment, but the payment information is incorrect. How can I change it?
You can change your credit or debit card or ACH/EFT information yourself by visiting My Membership.
How do I change my payment information if the card I use for auto-renewal expires?
