Professional Member Dues

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.
