  • Under 18 – not-yet 18-years of age, or paying 50% of the Individual membership fee.

The complete description of the privileges associated with each membership class are described in Sec. 1 MEMBERSHIP, of the SLAARC Bylaws, Revised, as adopted at the November 2018 Membership Meeting.


Dues are on a calendar year basis and are applied to the year in which they are received.  Dues for renewing/continuing members are applied to the current year, or the first future year for which dues have not already been credited. For new members joining between June and December may use the Under 18 selection (50% of Individual Dues).

The current annual dues are:
