How to become a member?

Email any of our officers and they can tell you when and where our next open officer meeting is. Come to these meetings to learn about what we do and how you can get involved. Attending our events and even helping us plan them and getting people to come are great ways to get involved, and often times this involvement gives you a leg up if you want to become an officer later on.
