Membership purchasers are encouraged to self-enroll in Automatic Renewal. This ensures access to the Museum with no lapse in your CMA member benefits from year to year. The membership will renew automatically on the day it expires.

Member households who enroll in Automatic Renewal will receive notification via email 30 days prior to their membership's expiration date that their renewal will process. The Museum will charge the current membership price to the credit card used during the initial purchase. An additional email will be sent after payment has been processed. This is your receipt and a record of your tax-deductible contribution to the Museum (memberships are 100% tax-deductible). 

Our Welcome Center and our Membership Department can assist you with enrolling an active membership into Automatic Renewal, changing the card on file, removing the membership from Automatic Renewal, and answering any questions you may have.
