Former members can be reinstated upon reapplying to CDTA ($35 application fee) and then paying their dues of $90 per year (pro-rated if necessary). If they wish to be eligible for Life Membership based on their original date of membership, all back dues must be paid, however CDTA will waive the late fees. Otherwise, the 30 years continuous service required for Life Membership will begin anew using the date of reinstatement.
