ATTENTION! We are currently accepting only credit card and ACH/EFT payments. Once the staff is allowed to return to the office, check payments will be accepted. Questions? Email and someone will handle your query. Thank you for your understanding!

You can join online at any time throughout the year.

  • Each one-year membership begins the day the dues payment is processed and continues through the final day of that month a year later. (For example, a membership that starts on March 7, 2019 ends on March 31, 2020.)
  • Membership dues are non-refundable.
  • Individual memberships are non-transferable.
  • Dues rates are subject to change every January 1.
