Membership – It is Time to pay your annual dues

 

January is time to renew your annual dues. All 2020 dues must be paid by January 31st.  It doesn’t matter what month you joined because our dues are only $10.00 per person and we do not pro-rate them.  There are three ways to pay your dues. We prefer that you use Method 1 or 2 because using Method 3 gets hectic at a PHlocking to collect dues.  Also using these methods are convenient if you are not attending the January Phlocking.

Method 1 – Use our website to renew, emeraldisleparrotheads.com. Use the Click here to Join or Renew picture (or click this link!) and follow the directions. You do not fill out a form to renew. There is a 61 cent fee that you need to add to your $10.00 for each   membership being renewed. This is the fee to PayPal. Also, you do not need to have a PayPal account. Any credit card can be used.

Method 2- Renew your membership through the mail. Send check to

Emerald Isle Parrot Heads
PO Box 4293
Emerald Isle, NC 28594-4293

Method 3 – Pay your dues at the January PHlocking.

 

All current members who do not renew at this time,  will have their information removed from our database. Then rejoining will require you to complete a registration form through our website.
