AiA Membership Payments Are No Longer Being Done Via PayPal

Contributed by Jim Schaff, AiA Vice President & Membership Coordinator

Good news! Our Treasurer has found a way to cancel the membership renewals that were being auto-processed by PayPal. At this point no one should receive a receipt for AiA membership from PayPal. All membership transactions are now being processed through Stripe.

If you’re unsure of your membership status, contact our Membership Coordinator, Jim Schaff, who is working to get us all on the same page since our website and membership management transition. Send a message to Jim at

Did You Know?

For those who joined using the previous website: When renewing your AiA membership on this website, your username is the first letter of your first and last name. We had to input a user name when transferring membership to the new system and chose to use each member’s initials.

We’re now using PaidMembershipsPro, an application that gives us better control over membership administration; and Stripe has replaced PayPal as our “payment gateway” for processing membership payments.

We now offer multiple Membership Levels. Choose the level (payment plan) that works best for you: monthly, quarterly or annual renewal – with or without auto-renewal – and with or without the member gallery option.

The Member Gallery option provides members with the opportunity to have their very own digital image gallery on the AiA website where they can display up works of art and links to their sites. See Galleries

We have been working very hard to make many improvements such as our new website and a brand new springtime juried exhibit. We’re counting on your continued membership to help us with these efforts and keep our artist community strong, and we thank you for your contributions.
