Membership Billing

Our memberships run January 1 – December 31.  When you join during the year, the system will prorate your payment.  For example, if joining at the $50 Bronze level on June 1, the system will bill you $25 for the current year.  We will send you a reminder in December when it is time to renew. If you join in November or December, the system will bill you for the prorated current year as well as the next year.

We recommend that you select auto-renewal and we will take care of renewing your membership in December and we will send you a receipt. You can access your account and cancel at anytime.
