- Dated certificate
- Dated membership ID card
- President's credential letter
Annual membership dues, $325.00 (USD), are payable beginning January 1, but due by March 31 for any given year. Active Duty Fee is $125.00 (USD) in addition to the Annual Membership Dues. Payment may be sent by mail, or a secure payment by credit card may be made through the members portal. A credit card processing fee applies.
The ECA Annual Ministerial Report, accessible through the members portal, is available for completion January 1 and must be submitted by March 31.
All ECA members are encouraged to submit payments and reports within the time-frame indicated in order to prevent additional notifications and costly follow-up.
Beginning January 1, 2021 - The ECA will not issue credentials to members who have not submitted a completed current Annual Report and who have not paid the current year's dues and fees in full. This includes any outstanding Annual Reports and/or dues and fees. Calling or sending an email to the office will help us assist a member in making sure all reporting and payments are brought up to date. For contact information, click here.
