The ACBL Board of Directors establishes the annual membership dues and Life Master service fees as well as the means for collecting them. The ACBL Board of Directors also determines the portion of dues or Life Master service fees to be automatically rebated to the unit.

Membership dues are payable every 12 or 36 months. If dues are not paid within one month after their due date, the individual becomes an “inactive” member. Inactive members may reinstate their memberships by sending the current membership fees to ACBL. This reinstates their masterpoint totals as of the date they became inactive. See Chapter 2.
