Member Information Changes

Q:

An individual with a UBTA membership has left our company.  Can we designate another employee to take over the membership? 

 

Yes, all Direct and Allied memberships are the exclusive right of the corporation. If the membership is company paid, the company may, with approval of the Vice President Membership, name a new member and pay a change fee for the remainder of the term of the current membership.  If annual dues are paid directly by an individual and not reimbursed by their employer, membership in the Association is retained by the individual in the event of termination of that individual’s employment.

Q:

I am leaving my current position, can I retain my membership?

 

All Direct and Allied memberships are the exclusive right of the corporation.  If a member changes jobs, the member must still qualify in a new position.  Member representatives are required to notify the Vice President Membership in writing of employment termination. If annual dues are paid directly by an individual and not reimbursed by their employer, membership in the Association is retained by the individual in the event of termination of that individual’s employment.
