5. Am I eligible to win a scholarship?
EVERY dues-paying member of GEDA is eligible to receive scholarship money. Inactive members or those that have allowed their memberships to expire are NOT eligible. The only exception is the Penn Worden Grant. This grant is designed for non-members as a way of engaging them in GEDA. To apply for the scholarship click here.
6. When are Annual dues to be paid?
Annual dues are due for ALL members on February 1 of each year. Dues are not prorated for anyone. Invoices will be sent in November each year in anticipation of the February 1 due date. Special note - if you pay your dues starting in September, that payment will carry forward through the end of the following year. A grace period of 90 days after February 1 will be observed after which member benefits will be discontinued.
7. If I leave my company - what do I do to retain my membership?
All memberships are held by the individual. If you leave your company - the membership goes with you; it does not stay with the company. Memberships cannot be transferred from one person to another, neither can member benefits be shared by several people. (i.e. We cannot include multiple email addresses for one membership so that extra people are able to see our news and information.)
8. How do I change my contact information in the membership directory?
Login to your member profile here. On the Member Compass, select "Profile" on the right side of the page. You can update all of your information on this page except your name, your company name, and the username for your account. If any of these change, please contact us at email@example.com, and we will update your member profile for you.
9. Where are files and documents that GEDA members may be interested in?
Each of GEDA's Committees and any Task Forces that may arise from year to year have their own page on our website. They can be accessed by going to the Get Involved page on our menu bar. Click on the Committee most likely to house the document you'd like to see and it will likely be there. Please keep in mind that almost all documents are for members only. They will be on a documents page linked from each Committee Page. This page is password-protected for members only. If you do not see the information you are looking for please contact us, and we will research the topic to find the answer.
