My family and I are new and just want to join...
Each person must be on a separte membership form. One member of the family must be chosen as the primary member.
In a couple, either is fine, but in a larger family, it must be one of the parents so that the other family members are their dependants per the IRS.
If you write them off on your taxes, they may be a member of your family, but not the other way around.
The primary member should follow the procedure above, selecting either 2b (lifetime membership) or 2c (participating member).
NOTE: Associate members may not use additional family members.
It is allowable to have more than one lifetime member in a family, but each must pay the $300 fee. In this case, the additional lifetime member
fills the form out as above, also checking "LIFETIME PARTICIPATING MEMBER", and pays the same amount.
All other family members follow steps similar to the above, but check the "ADDITIONAL FAMILY GROUP MEMBER" box instead of the 2b or 2c.
On each faimily members' form, print the name of the primary member where it says "Name:".
Family memberships may also be prorated
based on the month joined. The months and expirations are the same as shown above, but for the amounts, see the rates on the right.
Renewing members, both individual and family, follow similar steps as those above, but check "RENEWAL" in the top left box.
If you know your membership ID (it can be found on the website under Membership Info and then under your Chapter), please fill it in.
In family memberships, write the primary member's ID above his/her name in the "ADDITIONAL FAMILY GROUP MEMBER" section.|
Renewing members are not rewarded for renewing late and do not get to prorate their memberships. There is no penalty for renewing early.
