Membership dues allow us to provide our members with the best representation and support possible. They are vary based on status and are due on the first of each month, but members can pay as far ahead as they would like. Members have several options for paying their dues.

Sign up for Auto Dues This convenient service for our members pays your dues directly out of your vacation fund. As long as you're working, you won't have to worry about your dues. If you stop working, you can check on how much money is in your vacation fund by calling Zenith at 651-256-1801. And, you can always supplement your dues payments if your vacation fund runs out by utilizing another payment method. 

Once per year, we will request a full year of dues to be drawn out of your vacation fund. If there isn't enough to cover a full year, we will continue to request funds once a month to pay you through January of the following year.
