Online payments are strongly preferred as they are the most secure method and the membership process is automated. A recent PayPal change now requires a PayPal account so you can no longer just your credit/debit card. However, You can easily set up a PayPal account and default to use a credit card as payment (rather than your bank account).
Your membership card will show up under your profile. Click on your name in the upper right and select View Profile. 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.
