Regular Member dues have remained $15 per year since 1985. They ensure that we have the resources to support timely, interesting, and inclusive events and activities. We're happy to offer membership free for the first year, provided you haven't used it before. Membership in our community is open to everyone, regardless of Peace Corps service.

Automatic vs Manual

There are two options for renewing your membership. With the One-Year option, when your membership expires, the website will prevent your account from accessing certain "Members Only" pages. Your membership will remain inactive until you navigate to this page and purchase another, at which point you will receive full access again. The Ongoing option automatically bills Paypal when your membership expires, so your dues are always current and you're never locked out of the website. We recommend this option for its convenience, and it can be disabled at any time through your PayPal account settings.

Additional Methods of Payment

We accept cash or check, mailed to the address below. You may also renew your dues in person at an event. For more information, please contact our Treasurer.
