As a professional association, you may have several different types of dues you bill your members. For example, besides the regular membership dues, you could have chapter dues or national dues. Also, you could create a dues code for member services you might bill for such as insurance or dental plans.
Before you can assign a dues code, you must first create a look up code.
This is the Members Id number. The computer automatically assigns the id number. The name is at the top of the screen in the blue section of this bitmap.
This field represents the Member's type, for example, a "PM" for Professional Member.
SAMS auto-fills this information from the individuals first screen.
This is the Members status and status reason description. For example, "A" for active, "I" for inactive, "T" for terminated, and “D” for delete. SAMS will globally change all active members who have not paid to inactive by clicking on Tools, Members, and selecting Inactivate/Terminate/Delete program. This is a great marketing tool! You may send a letter to all inactive members, and ask why they haven’t rejoined.
Dues codes are established as look-up codes.
