Membership Term and Payment
So, how do I get in on all this fun?
Our annual membership term runs from May 1st to April 30th of the following year. Members can renew or join for a reduced rate ($25) between May 1 and June 30 of the each membership year, otherwise the full membership fee ($30) is charged. All membership applications must be signed* and are considered valid when the confirmation email is received (or when the paper form is received by the Membership Director). A separate check must be submitted to the treasurer and should not be combined with a payment for another trip or event. Checks submitted without a corresponding signed* application form cannot be processed.
Join online now by clicking here, or Membership Forms can be downloaded and mailed in.
(If you're looking for renewal information, you need to log in and click "renew" next to your name. See FAQs about renewals!)
Members must be 21 or older in age.
Please note that unfortunately you will not be able to signup for events on the website for a short period after joining/renewing (until your membership check is processed). In this case, you can still signup for our great events the the old-fashioned way - please see this question in the FAQ Trip/Event Sign-Up questions.
* "Signed" includes electronic signatures, in this case clicking "I agree" on the joining agreement (read it now on the Membership Sign-Up Form).
