Dear Members,

As a valued member of the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA), the AFCA Board of Directors wishes to inform you of significant updates regarding our membership renewal process for 2024.

Membership Renewal for 2024 Opens January 1, 2024

2024 membership renewal will open January 1, 2024, through our website. This marks an important step as we continue to strengthen our community and provide vital support to fire service professionals across Alberta.

New Membership Renewal Policy and Fee Increase

For the first time since 2015, we are introducing an increase in membership dues. This change is aligned with AFCA Board Bylaw Clause 9, “Membership Fees,” which mandates the Board of Directors to establish fees annually. The adjustment in dues is a response to the rising costs of inflation and supports our Board’s efforts in addressing the increasing activities and challenges within the fire service.  In reflecting upon the economic changes and the need to bolster our services and initiatives, it became inevitable that changes in membership fees are required, and we assure you that this decision was made after thorough consideration of our financial requirements and our commitment to delivering high-quality services and resources to our members.

Early Bird and Regular Rates

The new policy introduces an Early Bird rate, effective from January 1 to March 31, offering a discounted fee for early renewals. The Regular Rate will apply from April 1 onwards. We encourage you to take advantage of the Early Bird rate for cost savings.

The increases are:

Membership Type Early Bird (January 1, to March 31)  Effective April 1
Active $200 $230
Associate $165 $190
Trade $230 $265
Affiliates $130 $150

Payment Options

We would like to inform you of an important change in our payment policy. Effective immediately, the Alberta Fire Chiefs Association (AFCA) will no longer accept payments via cheque. This decision has been made in light of the challenges we have encountered in processing cheque payments, including significant delays in receiving funds and following up on overdue accounts. Moving forward, we will be exclusively accepting payments through credit card.

Benefits of Electronic Payments

  • Quick Processing: Electronic payments are processed much faster, ensuring that your transactions with AFCA are smooth and timely.
  • Reduced Administrative Load: This shift allows us to allocate our administrative resources more effectively, focusing on enhancing member services and support.
  • Convenience: Electronic payments offer a more convenient and secure method of transaction for both parties.

We understand that this change may require an adjustment for some members’ administrative procedures.

Your Support Matters
Your continued support and participation in the AFCA are invaluable. The adjustments in our policy and fees will enable us to further enhance our offerings, focus on priorities, and maximize our administrative staff time to effectively address the evolving needs of Alberta’s fire service community.

For more information on the new policy and to renew your membership, please visit our website. If you have any questions or need assistance, do not hesitate to reach out to us.

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing commitment to the AFCA. Together, we will continue to make a significant impact in serving and protecting our communities.
