Starting on Jan 2017, we implemented a yearly membership dues structure. As of Jun 2018, we had to increase it to $35/yr.
This group had become too overwhelming and time consuming to manage with just one person. We have grown so big that it was necessary to hire an assistant to keep this group running smoothly. For example, our Meetup costs $180/yr, our website costs about $600/yr and it another $1100/yr to hire an assistant to help us out behind the scenes.
You can sign up for an account & pay your membership dues below but please note that you can still attend our meetings even if you are not a paying member. We encourage you to pay the membership fee if you have received value from our group. Plus, there are several membership perks and discounts that are included in membership. Our membership fee covers many things and we host several fun events throughout the year with our surplus.
If you are already a member and need to renew your dues, please read about how to do this on our FAQ page.
