You can join us one of two ways:

I. Online Dues Payment Option

Individual Membership $52.00Membership dues are to be paid annually on January first after the year of initial enrollment. The second year’s dues will be prorated at time of payment.
EDIT SHIPPING ADDRESS on the PayPal checkout form if the adress that you want listed in the membership directory is different from your PayPal Address. If the membership dues are for someone other than the PayPal account holder, ENTER THE MEMBER’S NAME in the “Message to Seller” field at the bottom of the PayPal checkout form.

 

Prorated Dues by the Week to Align with Calendar Year $1.00 per weekSCWW would like to align membership dues with the calendar year to simplify many membership activities. For example, if your dues expire April 1, then a prorated payment of $39 would extend your membership for 39 more weeks to Dec 31. Don’t use this option for new memberships.
EDIT The NUMBER OF WEEKS on the PayPal checkout form.

 

Family Membership $78.00Get $26 off the membership dues for the second family member! EDIT SHIPPING ADDRESS on the PayPal checkout form if the adress that you want listed in the membership directory is different from your PayPal Address. ENTER BOTH MEMBERS’ NAMES in the “Message to Seller” field at the bottom of the PayPal checkout form. Also list each family member’s individual email addresses, if you have them.

 

Student Membership $26.00If you are a full-time student, dues are half rate. In the “Message to Seller” field at the bottom of the PayPal checkout form, type your school and field of study. Note: you must be eighteen or over to become a member of SCWW.
