  2. At the top right of the form, fill in the membership year for which you’re paying. If you’re paying dues for 2016, write 2016 – even if you made the payment at the end of 2015.
  3. Check the appropriate Membership Level:
    • If you’re renewing your membership, check the box next to “Renew / Contributing $40.
    • If you’re a new member, check the box next to “New $40.” This will cover the remainder of the calendar year and will expire on December 31st of that year. Dues are not prorated.
    • Leave the “Received by” and date fields blank. The Poly representative who takes your payment will fill these in.
  4. Check either Cash or Check depending on your payment type. We prefer checks. Make your check payable to “Poly Photo Club.
  5. Fill in all of your contact information, even if you are a renewing member. A legible email address is especially important.
  6. We encourage all members to get involved in the club and we need all the help we can get. So, in the Volunteer section, check any box that applies to a skill you already have or one you’d like to learn in order to help the club.
  7. Finally, sign and date the Building Hosting section at the bottom of the form. Your signature here confirms your promise to fulfill this important duty at least once per year. You and a second member will hold an open house at the Photo Arts Building to allow the public to view our photos and inquire about membership. It’s an easy job that most members find enjoyable. You’ll be able to sign up for an exact date later in the year.
