CFA membership fee query

Been trawling the forums for an answer for this but to no avail. I want to restart my CFA membership having passed the exams 6 or so years ago. Lapsed membership i believe is the term. If i pay the 275$ now will this just cover me for 4 months ie to july and will i then have to pay again?

It will cover till July only. You will need pay again in July.

I have a question for you, do we need to be part of local society to renew/use the designation?

I thought part of the dues is for the local society so you are automatically added
