Paying online is the quickest and most secure method as the whole process is automated.
A recent PayPal change now initially prompts you to set up an account, but you do not need to do so, just go to Pay by Credit/Debit Card, and enter your card information.
Your membership card will show up under your profile (click on your name in the upper right) and select View Profile. Your membership card will be displayed, and you can then make a .pdf of the card. If local vendors ask, you can show it to them on your smartphone.
You will receive a renewal notice a 2 weeks prior to your renewal date with instructions on how to renew. If you do not renew, you will receive a notice 2 weeks and 4 weeks after your renewal date at which time your membership is "lapsed".
If you want to upgrade your membership level (i.e. from General to Patron), go to your Profile (click on your name in the upper left). Under Membership Details select "Change" and follow the instructions.
