Online credit card transactions are conducted at a secure PayPal/Verisign server and are processed immediately. Your membership will be active as soon as the transaction clears. Look for an Order Confirmation (receipt) by email shortly after payment is complete. You should also receive a Welcome to the EFA email with your initial log-ins for the EFA website. Remember to check spam, junk, and similar folders. If you do not receive these emails, please contact the EFA office.
Check payments are also accepted. If you choose that option, you will be presented with a printable invoice to submit with your payment. Your membership will be active when your check reaches the EFA office and is processed.
Guest status is free, and enables you to register for EFA courses and webinars. Guests do not have access to the members-only areas of the website. To become a guest, complete the online form.
To upgrade from guest status to full membership, log in and then complete the online form. If you need a reminder of your EFA username or password, click the Forgot? link in the sign-in area.
If you are a returning member whose membership has lapsed (whether within the year or earlier), please write the EFA atso that we can reactivate your old membership.
There is a processing fee of $35 in addition to dues for new members, guests upgrading to full membership, and former members returning after a lapse of more than thirty days.
