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.


Please remember to fill out the correct form. If you are a renewing member and you fill out the new member form, this could delay processing your renewal.

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

1.  application
2.  payment
3.  orientation
4.  picture

If you are a renewal member, please submit;

1. application
2. payment

Things that hold up your application:

  1. Payments under a different name 
  2. Waiting for a picture
  3. Orientation
  4. Not having the same name on all of these submissions.
  5. Sending the wrong amount of payment

                                  USE THE SAME NAME FOR EACH THING

    a. The name on your APPLICATION, ( Put your first name and last names in the correct places, what ever way you put it, that’s how it will show up on your membership card)

    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.

It takes time to puzzle this all out and your membership card will be delayed.

When an application is received,  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.
