Membership Frequently Asked Questions

Membership Dues 

Annual dues are payable on the member’s anniversary date. Continued membership and its privileges are contingent on being up-to-date with membership dues for all categories of membership: regular, family, contributing and institutional. Here are a few FAQs that explain how our membership process works.

What is an Anniversary Date?

DGS is on an “anniversary date” basis for membership. This is similar to joining a health club or subscribing to your local newspaper – it begins when you join/subscribe and typically goes for one year.

I am ready to join – what does this mean for me?

As a new member, your membership will be effective on the day you join and last for 12 months (plus a 30-day grace period).

Will we get a renewal email a month before the due date?

Yes, we will send notifications to those members whose membership is about to expire.
