How to Renew

Becoming a member of OAKE is easier than ever!  

How do I Renew?

This website will show a “Renew” button when your membership is about to expire. This button becomes visible in the month that your account is set to expire. If you cannot see a Renew button when you are logged in, this is because your membership is not set to expire yet.

To find out when your membership is due to expire, go to the “My Account” page. 

How to Renew:

  1. Click “Log In” from any page on the website. 
  2. Log in with your EMAIL and Member ID as your PASSWORD
  3. Once logged in, look for the “Renew” button at the top of the page.* 
  4. Click “Renew” and submit your application.

*Didn’t see a Renew button?
This means your account is Active still and not set to Renew yet.

The email address we’ve used to get your account started is the last known email address on file.  If you would like to change your email address, you will be able to do this through the “My Account” page.  Once you have renewed, your new Membership Card will be emailed to the current email address on file.  

Having trouble?
If you’re having trouble remembering your prior email address or Member ID, click on “Request New Pasword” on the Log in page. Feel free to contact us anytime at or by phone during office hours at 310.441.3555.

Go Green!
With the recent launch of our new website, we would like to encourage you to sign up for our Go Green initiative which is an effort to save resources and reduce costs. Members signing up for this option agree to renew their membership online and receive their renewal reminder by email only instead of receiving a reminder by U.S. Postal mail as well.  Select the “Go Green” option under “My Account” while logged into

Members may withdraw from the program at any time by logging in to their OAKE account on the OAKE website. 

How to check your Automatic Renewal status or make changes to your account:

  • Log in to your OAKE Account
  • Click on “My Account”
  • Go to the “Billing” tab
  • Here you can check on your Automatic Renewal status, change your source of funds, or cancel your subscription.

An OAKE Membership begins on the day of the membership transaction (Last Membership Date) and expires exactly one (1) year later (Expiration Date). For members enrolled in the Automatic Renewal program, memberships will renew on the exact day of the Last Membership date, exactly one (1) year after registration for the Automatic Renewal program, and subsequent years after, or until canceled. Members may cancel their enrollment in the Automatic Renewal program at any time by contacting the OAKE National Office. If enrollment is canceled, the affected OAKE Membership continues through to the previously established Expiration Date.
