Complete the application with the information requested, and submit URLs for any clips and other documentation that can be viewed online. Amazon links for books are fine; links to your own website are also acceptable if your credits are accessible there. (Note: You can save your application and return as many times as you need to before submitting. If it is not submitted within 90 days, however, the record will be deleted.)

Once you are satisfied the application is complete, you submit the online application and pay the $50.00 application fee by credit card using our secure form. If you prefer, you may mail a check to the address below but: your application will not be reviewed until the application fee is received.

A note on the process: Each application receives thoughtful consideration by our Membership Committee, though on an irregular schedule. In addition, general information about each applicant will be shared with our current membership. (If there is any information you would prefer NOT like shared in this way, please alert us in the OTHER INFORMATION section of the application.) The entire process may take up to six weeks, and we greatly appreciate your patience.
