  • Why sign in?

  • For the past several years we have had the chapter incentive program to encourage attendance at our meetings.

    • For 2010, two $25 gift certificates for any Restaurant will be awarded to every member attending six or more regular meetings or who brings one new member into the chapter. (Note – You must be a member in good standing for the entire year to qualify)

  • For guests or members attending for the first time, this also insures your notification by email of all subsequent events.

  • We ask that you help us by making a voluntary donation
