The annual NATIONAL dues cost is $250 per member. $500 for a couple, but many members bring their spouse as their guest.
Dues are $100 a year per member.
This covers the cost of operations, wine, pin purchases and local promotions.
While you're at it, don't forget to ask your friends to join you as members of the Chaine. It does not take much to invite a friend of the family or a family member to the next Chaine event and then follow up with an invitation to join. We need new and engaged members to sustain our beloved Chaine. Perhaps just as important is the opportunity that you give them to enjoy the wonderful organization that means so much to you.
By bringing in a new member you will be recognized for doing so and be able to sport the new "Share the Chaine" pin on your ribbon.
Thank you very much to the many of you who have sponsored new members and we hope that your actions will not go unnoticed by other members who also want to be recognized for these efforts.
