2014 Membership Renewal


Individual MembershipIt’s that time of the year. Time to renew your annual club membership.

It’s been an exciting year for the club, and 2014 promises to be even better.

We have critical elections in June for Sarah Boot to represent District 2 on the City Council, and returning Scott Peters to his second congressional term for the 52nd District.

Please click here to purchase your membership online (you will be taken to a secure payment site).

– Guaranteed seating at monthly meetings and other club events
