Membership Program


  • Annual membership dues ($25).
  • Membership is for a given calendar year (January 1 – December 31).
  • Memberships starting in the fourth quarter of a calendar year are effective until the end of the following calendar year. For example, dues paid on October 1, 2018, are paid through December 31, 2019.
  • If the ability to pay membership dues is a barrier, the Lead Pack will provide options.



  • Invitations to both public and private events
