Save a tree! (And the annual hassle!) By checking the Auto-Renew box on your Membership, Renewal, or Gift Membership Application, your credit card will be automatically charged each year for the next year's dues on your renewal date! You will receive an e-mail confirming that this has occurred. If your credit card has expired or terminated, you'll receive an e-mail asking you to use the online Renewal Form to update your credit card. Auto-renewal also greatly reduces the workload on your NSS Office staff, freeing them to do other things for you. Thanks!
