Can I pay my dues in installments?

TSNO/NASN members can pay their dues in one annual payment or in quarterly installments. This is called the Billing Frequency. If a member selects quarterly billing frequency, the annual dues plus an annual fee of 5% is spread out over the membership year. NASN will automatically charge the member's credit card every three months for a portion equal to one-fourth of the total amount. The automatic payments will continue into the next membership year unless the member notifies NASN to terminate the dues.
