Civic organizations play an important role within our community. I hope you will consider membership. A corporate membership is a unique feature of our club that allows one representative to be our official member; however, if he/she is unable to attend they can send a coworker in their place. This is a perk for employers who want to get multiple employees involved in their community.  

Dues are $50 per month for in-person meetings or $25 per month to attend only virtual sessions. Dues can be paid every other month or annually. We typically meet the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th (as occurs) Wednesdays of the month at noon. Lunch is provided at our in-person meetings.
