The April dues period is just around the corner — and you can sign up now to receive your dues bill online via e-mail. It’s an absolutely free new service that simply makes good financial sense.
Paperless billing is yet another way we’re more efficiently serving our members: cutting costs (not to mention clutter in your home), making your billing instantaneous and, as part of our ongoing green initiative, doing our part to save the environment.
Join thousands of your fellow Guild members who have already signed up and care about the environment and saving resources. Sign up by April 7 to get your April dues bill sent to you electronically.
If you haven’t, consider these dollars-and-cents reasons to do so:
- Save paper and stamps. You won’t just save yourself money, but you’ll save the Guild money, too. With more than 125,000 members, and dues bills being sent out twice a year, the Guild has a hefty business expense that can be significantly lightened by paperless billing.
- Time is money, and you can get your complete, comprehensive dues bill as soon as it’s issued. No more “surprises” if you change address or have some other type of mail service interruption. You’ll have plenty of time to pay your dues without incurring penalties or risking your good standing as a member.
- You can download to your computer or mobile device an exact virtual copy of the bill you would normally receive in the mail. That will reduce clutter, and if you live at the frantic pace that most actors do, it will also reduce the chance that you’ll misplace this important information.
- With the complete detail provided by paperless billing, you’ll fully understand what you owe and be better empowered to use the Guild’s free “Pay Dues Online” service, if you so choose, saving yourself the cost of mailing. “Pay Dues Online” is free, more secure than the U.S. mail and accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Here’s a link to help get you started with paperless billing as well as answers to any additional questions you may have. Don’t worry; should you change your mind, you can always revert back to a paper bill with a simple click if you determine it’s not right for you.
