New members and renewing members, we are currently changing our membership management system. Unfortunately, we’re experiencing technical issues with payment processing, delaying the launch of the new system.

EXISTING MEMBERS: If your membership lapsed in November or lapses in December, don’t worry. Your membership renewal deadline has been extended to 1/31/15. You will receive email notification to renew when the technical issues have been resolved.

NEW MEMBERS: Add your name and email address below. We will manually add you to our new system, give you access to the membership section of this website, and email you to pay for your membership as soon as the technical issues have been resolved.

Rather pay by check? Scroll down to the bottom of this page for directions on paying for membership with a check via snail mail.
