Reminder: April dues disbursements are now in your BillHighway account
The BillHighway project is now live and fully operational as of April 1st. Going forward, dues disbursements to networks are done monthly directly to your account (along with reconciliation) and is the only method to obtain your dues from National. Checks are no longer sent manually, and disbursements are automatically deposited into your BillHighway account. Please see the archived Roadmap for full details. Over 2/3 of all networks are actively and successfully using BillHighway.

Reminder: Rosters are a year-round tool
As communicated in Roadmap Edition 5, National no longer automatically notifies leaders via email when new members join, but by viewing the roster on a regular basis and viewing join dates, you can effectively onboard members using your systems. Note, National welcomes new members once a week via an automated email and informs them that local networks will be in touch. Second-year members renew on their anniversary date on a prorated basis, so regular analysis of member rosters is necessary for network leaders to maintain, renew, and onboard members. A video on member analytics on the stream channel outlines best practices on how to use this tool. Questions about roster or discrepancies? Please get in touch directly with Jackie Flores, email@example.com.
