Renew Your Designation or AIME Membership



Due to the National Apartment Association’s migration to a new association management database and programming that is still underway, the NAAEI is extending its 2015 deadline for NAA designates to pay their designation renewal fees and submit continuing education credits (CECs).



If you have not yet paid your dues or submitted your Continuing Education Credits, NAAEI can accept designation dues payment by check and receive CECs by electronic form, mail, email or fax: 703-797-0666. At this time NAAEI is unable to accept credit card payments online.  If you would like to pay by credit card, please continue to check this website to learn when credit card payments can be accepted. Designates who pay designation dues and report CECs AFTER May 31, 2015 will be charged a $50 reinstatement fee. 


NAAEI Designation renewals reminders are sent in November and both dues and Continuing Education Credits (CECs) should be submitted by January 1. A $50 reinstatement fee is added to all renewals received after April 1.

Renewal FAQs


I am a CAMT designate and I recieved an invoice. What is for?

This invoice is not for renewal of your CAMT designation. Since ANSI accredidation, the CAMT is a designation  does not need renewal and is good for life. The invoice is for the Apartment Institute for Maintenance Excellence (AIME) program.  AIME is an optional membership program available only to CAMT designates. As a member of AIME, you will be acknowledged as a leader in the field of Apartment Maintenance, and can prove that you are tuned in to the most up to date information on industry regulations and other changing standards. You will also have the opportunity to take advantage of maintenance training designed specifically for CAMT certificate holders.

What are the benefits to renewing my designation?

The full list of designate benefits.

I need a new certificate, how can I obtain one?

Please complete the Certificate Order Form.

How should I proceed with renewal if I have been deployed in the military?

Have your dues and CECs waived by submitting a Military Deployment Waiver.

I am retired or have been in the industry for 25 years, do I need to submit CECs?

If you are retired and inactive in the apartment industry or if you have 25 years of industry experience you can apply for emeritus status. Designates with emeritus status pay annual dues but are not required to submit CECs with renewal. Please send a copy of your resume to NAAEI to obtain emeritus status.

What happens if I don't renew my designation?

Designates who fail to submit renewal fees or sufficient CECs will become inactive in the NAA database and will be unable to use the designation acronym or receive other designate benefits. NAA will continue billing inactive designates for three years of inactivity. Designates have up to five years after becoming inactive to reinstate the designation (by submitting a $50 reinstatement fee, two years of CECs, and outstanding dues up to three years). After five years of inactivity, Designates would be required to retake the course and exam.

I am behind on my renewal, what do I do now?

You can still bring your designation into good standing! Designates who are late completing their designation renewal can reinstate by submitting $50 for the reinstatement fee and then submitting all required dues payments and CECs.  If it has been more than one year, the designate should submit unpaid dues and continuing education for the years they did not submit as well as the $50 reinstatement fee.

Need CECs? You have a lot of online and in-class options!

Designates are charged for no more than three years of back dues and no more than two years of continuing education. Contact NAAEI for an invoice and update your contact information so you will receive all renewal email and mail reminders.
