Membership Card FAQs:

  • Why is the member since date incorrect?
    o The member since date included on your newly re-designed membership card is the continuous member since date included on your basic member record, which may be different than your join date. The join date and the continuous member since date could be different if there was a lapse in or change in membership designation/status.  Re-ordered cards will include the member join date instead of the continuous member since date.  
  • Why do the cards not include an expiration date?
     
    o The increased quality of the cards makes them more durable so they will last longer. The cards are meant to be our members’ permanent membership cards. However, members may request replacement cards whenever they are lost, destroyed or stolen free of charge. New members will receive cards, replacement cards may be re-ordered and members will receive new Platinum cards when they upgrade to Sustaining Membership. 
  • Why is there a QR code on the card?
    o QR codes are tied to member numbers/member records and may be used at NYSBA events and meetings where self-serve QR Kiosks are provided allowing our members the ease and convenience of printing their badges quickly. The QR codes on the newly re-designed membership cards are not meant to collect member data to share with third parties. The codes are meant to enhance our membership cards adding a technology aspect our members may find useful given their busy day-to-day lives. Instead of waiting in line members may print their badges at self-serve conveniently located QR Kiosks provided at our larger events like Annual Meeting.
