    The credit card page is NOT working. I don’t have a U.S. state and it doesn’t like my phone number. Can I send a check?

    • AIA says:

      Hi Sharon,

      On the secured payment page, you can switch the country from US to France. Then you don’t have to enter a state and it should be able to digest your phone number 🙂

    Due to a system change, it is the same form for new members and renewing members. For next year’s renewal, you will not need to submit your passport again.

    I too, am unable to get a response on the family membership link above, while the student option worked…
    – the passport, etc, info should be able to be omitted for renewing members.

      Hi Joy & Nils,

      That probably means that your family membership has not expired yet. At the moment, members who do not choose auto-renewal have to wait until their membership is expired before renewing. Sorry for that inconvenience.
