How to sign up as a member

  If you are wondering what happens after you click the New Member Signup link, here is the explainer.

The system will ask you to agree to our privacy policy, ask for your contact information and give you the option to tell us something about yourself. You will have the option to either pay directly online e.g. via credit card, or to pay by check later.

Your spouse/partner can sign up separately or you can add them as a secondary member. A secondary member has all the benefits of a primary member; however, they do not need to have a separate email address and login unless they want to.This is a good option if you prefer to just have one login and email for both of you. You also have the ability to add a tertiary (third) member.

The screenshots below describe the steps you will see after you click on New Member Signup from the menu at top right

After you update that the Secondary member box on the left hand side will display their name and also the club fee owing. After you save this screen it will take you to the payment screen which is like what you saw when you signed up yourself as member.
