MaFLA Members: to register for ACTFL, please follow these easy steps
1. Renew your MaFLA dues! Your dues must be paid through November 30, 2016 in order to use the MaFLA partner rate and receive the ACTFL discounted price. And just so you know, when you renew your dues, they will automatically be extended. So, if your dues renew on October 12, 2016, the renewal will extend through October 12, 2017. You’ll save when you register as a MaFLA member!
2. Keep in mind that the ACTFL database is uploaded at the first of each month, so there will be a delay from renewing your dues to having ACTFL’s database recognize your name.
3. For faster action, call MaFLA (not ACTFL – they have to call MaFLA to verify!), so call the MaFLA Membership and Marketing Coordinator directly at 617-431-3891 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
