NALS Member Classification and Fees
By joining NALS, you are agreeing to be bound by the NALS Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, as well as the NALS Bylaws and Standing Rules.  A person serving a sentence for a felony conviction is not eligible for membership.  A member, to be in good standing, shall be current in the payment of dues or other accounts payable to NALS (as defined in Article V, Dues and Fees), as applicable. 

 

Refund Policy

The entire fee, less a 25% processing fee, may be refunded if requested in writing within 48-hours of (1) the submission of the original membership application or (2) the automatic renewal of continuing membership. Cancellations after this period will forfeit the full amount of the membership registration or renewal fee.
