New in 2009, the Board is asking members to consider a membership renewal fee at an elevated dollar value. The first $35 will be your membership fee and the balance will become a donation towards the development and growth of the Society. Please consider renewing at the BRONZE level of $50, SILVER at $100, GOLD at $250 or PLATINUM at $500. You will be provided with a written acknowledgment/receipt for your donation. The Board will take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support.
A membership renewal notice is sent by mail each year to the address currently listed in our membership database. In addition, a reminder is included in the Winter issue of the News Journal. If we do not receive your renewal by December 31st, your name will be dropped from the mailing list, the News Journal will be discontinued and "Members Only" site access will be denied. Your membership renewal is your responsibility.
To check the status of your membership, look at the date printed by your address on the mailing label of a recent News Journal. This date will indicate the year your membership expires.
You now have two options to send your dues renewal. You may return your dues renewal invoice along with a check mailed to the Membership Renewal Coordinator, Alice Ahlfeld, at the address provided on your invoice. If you have any questions you may contact Alice at at firstname.lastname@example.org
