Frequently Asked Questions
Q: My membership expiration date has changed. What’s going on?
A: At the end of 2014, Membership Services switched to a new database system with month-end expiration dates instead of the familiar weekly expiration dates. As a result, expiration dates for all memberships active at the time of the conversion were adjusted. If your expiration date happened to be adjusted backward, please don’t be concerned. You will receive the full year’s worth of membership benefits, including National Dragster and excess medical insurance coverage, regardless.
Q: I filed a forwarding order with the Post Office, but my National Dragster stopped coming soon after I moved. What happened?
