Annual chapter membership dues are $50.00 which is quite reasonable considering the potential value of our organization.  Application for membership in the MIchael Late Benedum Chapter is now an Online Process and can be accessed at the link below.  You will be prompted to enter your contact information, select your sponsoring member, and to make payment online.  An e-mail will be sent to your sponsoring member asking them to verify by clicking a link.  Once sponsorship is verified the application will go into a "pending" status, your name will be read at the next regular meeting and your name will be published in our monthly newsletter.  Once the 30-day waiting period concludes, barring any objections, your membership will become active and you will receive a welcome e-mail from the website with logon instructions.  Join Now!
