PA membership requirements for PAC endorsement meetings:
- Every PA member who has paid dues for 2020 and been a member for more than 60 days prior to the endorsement meeting (joined by the end of the day on November 15, 2019) can speak and vote at the endorsement meeting.
- Members who joined PA for the first time after November 15, 2019 (November 16, or later), including those who join at the door, are welcome and encouraged to speak at the meeting, but cannot vote at this meeting.
- New members that have joined PA for the first time on or after October 1, 2019, but before the November 15 deadline will be able to vote at the January endorsement meeting.

Lapsed members may renew at any time to speak and vote at the endorsement meeting. All memberships expire December 31 each year. If you have not renewed for 2020, but plan to attend the endorsement meeting, please renew online now rather than at the door of the meeting.
