Please note that the accounting for the American Club of Sweden is run by volunteers in their spare time. To remain an active member we ask that you please pay the annual fee upon receipt of your renewal invoice. In order to be able to close the books of the club properly at the end of each year, we are obliged to make expired members inactive. This means that if you do not pay your invoice, you will no longer be a member of the Club, and we will need to ask you to re-apply again to reactivate your account.
