Join or Renew Membership
- We are a small society that is 100% dependent on a handful of unpaid volunteers, most of whom work full-time. While we do our best to keep up, there may be a delay when a key volunteer is on vacation or focused on a work deadline. Thank you in advance for your patience.
- Membership runs from Jan 1 to Dec 31. If you join on or after Oct 1, your membership will be extended through the next year.
- If you join online, PayPal will immediately charge your account but your membership is not valid until a society volunteer enters the information into our member database. PLEASE BE PATIENT.
- As soon as your information is entered into our system, you will receive a confirmation email with your log-in information.
- Please provide your known Morse/Morss/Moss line information when you join. Please download the form here and email the completed document to our Secretary.
