There has been some confusion about the payment amounts due to the CT State Dues Tax being added this year. As a result the renewal amounts have changed. For Associate members who completed their required work or are exempt the total amount is $137.50. For Associates who did not complete their work or are not exempt the total will be $220. For Life members who did not complete their work and are not exempt the total will be $82.50. For Life members who are paying off their membership and owe for work the total will be $182.50. For Life members who are paying off their membership and do not owe for work the total will be $100.
