Benefits of Membership

We work hard, get a lot done, and have fun doing it.
As a member, you will be expected to attend meetings regularly, get involved and contribute. You will be able to vote at meetings and hold positions on the Executive and on committees. You will also enjoy our social outings and be eligible for a buy one, get one at a discount on our annual Gala tickets.
