USPA News:

Many new rating holders are confused about the relationship between their newly issued ratings and their current membership. Here is the difference:
1. USPA membership is valid for one year (12 months). Adding a new rating or renewing an expired rating does not affect the membership expiration date.
2. Renewing your membership does not automatically renew your ratings. USPA renews ratings only if the rating holder has submitted the proper signatures, fees and documents.
