ECDC membership runs from January 1st to December 31st. Existing members can renew any time before June 1st, and must be renewed to participate in any club votes – like election of club officers in January. After June 1st, past members are treated like new members. New members can join any time after September 1st and be members for 16 months (the balance of the current year and all of the next year) before they need to renew. In addition to this newsletter article, please look forward to an email from one of the ECDC Officers reminding you to renew. Membership is $20 for one person at an address, $30 for two at the same address, $5 for students and $12 if you request a hardcopy newsletter delivered to your mailing address.
