Membership is highly encouraged and open to everyone. We welcome those interested in attending our meetings, and anyone who would like to sit in on a meeting or two first before deciding to join. Membership takes effect on the date of the receipt of membership dues. (If you join in the 2nd half of a year, the cost is half the total.) Dual memberships are entitled to a single vote for organization business.
