The Illinois State Dental Society's categories of membership are designed in accordance with the ISDS bylaws. ISDS members are classified into the following categories: Active, Life, Retired, Retired Life, Provisional, Associate, Student and New Graduate.
You will receive a dues statement mid-November and the deadline to pay membership dues is January 1. The fastest and easiest way to pay dues is on-line. You will have the option of making a one-time payment or dividing your 2016 dues amount into 12 monthly payments (January through December). Once you complete this process, your ADA/ISDS membership record will be updated in real time.
ISDS has recently merged onto the new ADA membership database (Aptify). When the dues payment option is enabled, you will be directed to the ADA dues portal and will need to log into the ADA.org site with your ADA.org username and password.
Suffering a hardship, practicing part-time, taking a maternity leave? You might be eligible for a dues waiver.
For the first time, in 2016, members can now opt to pay their dues in monthly installments for the year of membership. This option is only available online.
By signing up for the Dues Payment Program, you agree to the verbage below:
Electronic Dues Payment Program
Authorization Agreement I authorize the Illinois State Dental Society (“ISDS”), an Illinois non-for-profit corporation, to initiate automated debits to the credit card shown below. This authorization includes all adjusting entries, either debit or credit, that may be required.
For each membership year, defined as January through December: if I enroll prior to January 5th of such membership year, the first debit shall be made on the 15th day of January; if I enroll after January 5th of such membership year, and such date falls on any of first through 5th days of the current month, my first debit will be on the 15th day of the month that I enroll. In any event, subsequent debits shall be made on the 15th day of each succeeding month through December of the membership year. If the scheduled date of a debit falls on a weekend or a legal or business holiday, the debit will occur on the next business day.
If I enroll prior to January 5th, each monthly debit shall be in an amount approximately equal to one twelfth (1/12) multiplied by the sum of the total tripartite and voluntary dues for the membership year to ISDS, American Dental Association, my local component society and other recipients designated by me (“Dues”). If I enroll after January 5th, the first monthly debit will be the cumulative monthly amount required to bring the monthly payments current and subsequent monthly debits shall be equal to one twelfth (1/12) multiplied by the sum of the total tripartite and voluntary dues for the membership year to ISDS, American Dental Association, my local component society and other recipients designated by me (“Dues”).
I agree to pay all such Dues amounts owed and designed by me. If, for any reason, my credit card is revoked, suspended, halted by me or the credit card cannot be processed for any other reason, I remain responsible for paying the Dues installment owed directly to ISDS on a timely basis. If a credit card payment debit cannot be processed, ISDS is authorized to attempt to initiate the debit again at a later time. If, for any reason, a debit is repeatedly dishonored. ISDS in not liable for any losses incurred by reason of any failure in the automated debit process. I am responsible for any fees that may be imposed by my credit card issuer. If my credit card cannot be processed on any two debit dates, ISDS may terminate the automated debits by giving me written notice at my address as shown in ISDS’s records. My membership shall not be considered in good standing until all past Dues amounts owed are considered current.
My membership will be automatically renewed each year unless I tell you to stop.Â Before the start of each renewal, I will be sent a reminder notice stating the Dues then in effect, including the amount paid in the previous membership year for voluntary dues to ISDS, America Dental Association, my local component society and other recipients designated by me. I may change the amount of my voluntary dues by notifying ISDS at 800.475.4737. If I do nothing, my credit card will be debited for the total amount of the Dues stated on the notice and in the manner set forth above.
I may terminate automated credit card debits by notifying ISDS by calling 800-475-4737 and the termination will be effective seven business days after the date the notice is received by ISDS. Following any termination of automated credit card debits by either ISDS or me, I will be responsible for paying my remaining Dues in full, directly to ISDS.
No refunds will be provided for canceled memberships. Note that the ISDS membership year runs from January 1st to December 31st. This authorization shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, without giving effect to any choice of law rule that would cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction to the rights and duties of the parties.
