National AOA dues are paid to the national office to support the overall AOA organization, and are required to be paid in order for a member to list AOA on their CV as being active members.
If national dues are not paid, the national AOA office will not verify AOA status for organizations that request such verification. Also, note that national dues are separate from local AOA chapter dues. Local dues support the annual service project organized by student members to serve the local community in Mississippi and demonstrates a member's active involvement with the chapter.
