Membership is $250 per calendar year. Dues are not prorated throughout the year. In addition to the yearly dues, all new members are required to pay a one-time initiation fee of $250 which is due at the perspective member's interview with the executive board. Please note that in addition to dues and initiation, the club will collect from the perspective member the additional 10% dues tax charged by the state of Connecticut. This applies to all dues, initiation fees, and assessments.
