Membership Dues & Fees

All adult members must pay a one-time initiation fee of $10.

Annual dues for adult members, in both the Full and Associate categories, are currently set at $30, to be paid by August 31 for the membership year that begins on Sept. 1. There is a dues payment "grace period" from Sept. 1 to 30. (Failure to pay dues by Sept. 30 results in removal from active roll and forfeiture of any rights and/or privileges.)

The membership year runs from Sept. 1 to Aug. 31 the following year.

New members joining throughout the year pay pro-rated dues, based on the quarter in which their membership application is received. The amounts are as follows:

Quarter # Months Covered Dues
Sept., Oct., Nov.
Dec., Jan., Feb.
March, April, May
June, July, Aug.

For example: An applicant who joined the organization in March would pay the $10 initiation fee plus $15 pro-rated dues, for a total of $25, whereas someone joining near the beginning of the membership year would pay a total of $40.

Junior members pay a one-time initiation fee of $5. They are not liable for annual dues. Conversely, they are not eligible for any member services apart from issuance of a membership certificate and any service also provided to the public at large.
