Renew your membership the easy, convenient way! Sign up for the Electronic Dues Payment (EDP) Program.
Can I participate in the EDP program?
As a CDA member, you are eligible to participate in the EDP program if your anticipated ADA membership dues are at least $131. (Per ADA bylaws, retired members are not eligible to participate in the payment plan.)
How does EDP work?
EDP is a payment option that allows members to pay their dues in equal installments. Dues are deducted automatically from a checking account of your choice on the fifteenth of the month when you enroll and thereafter until paid in full.
Are there any fees or additional charges?
The EDP program is offered to members with a service charge of $12, which will be equally divided among the months of the year. A $25 fee will be added to the total debit amount if deduction is declined due to insufficient funds, account closed, account frozen or payment stopped.
How do I enroll?
You can enroll online, by mail or fax.
(To enroll online, log in to your cda.org account, follow the renewal steps and when you are asked to "pay dues in full" or "enroll in monthly payments" select "enroll in monthly payments").
When will I receive my enrollment form?
The EDP enrollment form and envelope will be included with your 2015 statement mailed in early December.
What if I participated in the program last year?
Once enrolled in the EDP program you will automatically be auto enrolled each year moving forward.
How do I notify CDA of a change in my checking account?
Should you have a change in your checking account from which payment is deducted, just submit a voided check for the new account to CDA Finance Department at least seven business days prior to a scheduled payment date.
How will I know the amount to be debited from my account?
A letter confirming your participation and indicating the amounts of your monthly deductions will be mailed to you prior to the first deduction.
Can I cancel my participation?
At any time, you can cancel your participation by paying the balance of your dues.
