Special Notice for FY2021-2022
The Board decided at its executive session that members current for FY2020-2021 would be carried over to FY2021-2022, with no further dues charge.  The caveat is that if Howard County raises the Bain Center meeting location rent, that we may need to bolster the bank account with some sort of dues assessment.

Suspended members must pay the reduced dues amount of $25 to reinstate their active membership for FY2021-2022.

New members will pay a prorated dues amount that includes the Covid discount of $10.  See below.

Dues:  $35 Year

Dues are $35.00 for the fiscal year, which starts 1 July and runs through 30 June.

New Member dues are prorate discounted $3 per month from their effective start date in whole months through the end of the fiscal year.  See our schedule Fiscal Year .

Renewing Members membership renewal begins during the May monthly meeting and is due by 30 June.  We allow a grace period to the first monthly meeting in July.

We make announcements by email and verbally at the meeting to remind members it’s time to renew.  This means it is important to keep your email address we have on file up to date.

Late Fee – as of FY2016-2017 the Board of Directors approved a one time per FY late fee of $5.  The late fee accrues after the first monthly meeting in July ends, giving members time to renew during the meeting. Waived for FY2020-2021 & FY2021-2022.

Member Dues Payment –

NOTICE: Members current in FY2020-2021 have been carried over to FY2021-2022 with no dues owed.  Please do not pay.  If you have questions, or are not sure of your status
