The "Join Us" button has been retired.
Our website recently underwent an upgrade. This upgrade separated the function whereby a member of the public joins our organization from the function where either an active or inactive member renews their membership.
Prospective members may join using the "New members- join here" button and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the process.
Current active members need to click on the "Members Only" button and login. After logging into their account they will see a screen with a heading similar to the one below:
Here you are being asked to renew your membership by clicking on the "My Membership Profile" line which is on the left hand side of the screen. After doing this just follow the onscreen instructions. Please note the changes here have been kept to a minimum.
Members who are inactive and want to renew their membership should click on the "Members Only" button and login. If you cannot remember either your login and/or password follow the instructions that are on the screen. After answering some questions your login and/or password information will be emailed to you. Using this information you will be able to login and complete the renewal process.
Once you are logged in your will see the following heading with a similar message:
Click on the "Renew Membership" button and follow the onscreen instructions.
Thank you for your patience as you work your way through the screens. 
These new processes help save both time and effort for our hardworking Membership Chair and Treasurer!
