Month-End Closing Dates

All online submitted material is processed and counted toward recognition in the month received. Month-end closing dates are always the last calendar day of the month (see calendar below). This allows World Headquarters to process submitted material received so that recognition and progress reports can be compiled and generated within the first few days of the following month.

Please keep in mind that if you add a new, reinstated or dual member online by the listed monthly closing date, it is processed automatically and will appear on the next progress report. Additionally, if you submit a new, dual or reinstated member by fax, mail or email (joining in the current month or earlier) and it is received by the listed monthly closing date, it will be processed by the final DCP/DPR report date. However, if you submit a new, dual or reinstated member by fax, mail or email and it is received after the listed monthly closing date, it will be processed the following month (or later based on the member join date) and will be reflected as such on the following month's progress reports. If you have questions about your submissions, please contact us by email.
