How long do I have to pay my State Membership Fee invoice?

Members have 30 days from the invoice issue date to make a payment towards their State Membership Fee.

If a member does not make a payment or enter a payment plan within the 30-day payment period, the member will be sent a reminder notice notifying them that they have a final seven (7) day period to do so.

If payment still has not been made at the end of the final seven (7) days’ notice, the member will be resigned in the membership database.

At this stage, an email will be sent to the member notifying them of the resignation.

An email will also be sent to the Group Leader/Leader in Charge to notify them that the member is resigned and can no longer attend or participate in Scouting activities, whether at Group, District, Region or State level.

There is no expectation for Scout Groups to carry missed payments or non-payments by members in their Group.
