If you do not see your chapter when joining or renewing, please check the currency in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. The chapters shown will only be ones offered in that currency.

remain the same no matter the membership type and can be found one our dues chart.
In December of 2021, we reached out to our 500 Club members with an update that chapter dues would now be charged to all
500 club members. Don’t have chapter dues? We still ask that you renew each year so that we are able to stay up to date
on your my recent contact information. There is no fee charged during the renewal process if you do not have a chapter.
