YES! We now accept EMT  (Electronic Money Transfer)

From your banking app, direct your payment to:

Very important, put your member name/number on the subject line.

If you are a new member, do all 4 steps;





If you are a renewal member, please submit;



Things that hold up your application:

  1. Payments under a different name,

       2. Waiting for a picture or orientation.

      3. Not having the same name on all of these submissions.

                                  USE THE SAME NAME FOR EACH THING

    a. The name on your APPLICATION,( put your first name and last names in the                correct places)

    b. The name on your ORIENTATION,

    c.  The name on your PAYMENT and

    d. The name on your PHOTO

These need to be all the same name, the way you want it on your membership card would be perfect! It takes time to puzzle this all out and your membership card will be delayed.

When I receive your application I look for all required information. If I’m missing any I need to take time to email and request it. At that time your application goes onto the “complete when information comes in” pile. I will endeavor to complete it as soon as I can.
I hope this helps answer questions and not generate more.
Thank you all for your patience.
