Another option is to "pay later" which means you complete the online form, click the pay later option, and send us your check/money order in the mail.  Dues are paid annually in the amount of $26 (online pay) or $25 (by check) for a calendar year.

If you are not currently a member of CDGS you can join for the remainder of the 2021 calendar year for the reduced price of $9.00 (As of 7/1/2021). The full $15 dollar price will appear initially but $6.00 will be discounted when you check out.

All options to join CDGS or renew your membership require you to have an account. Current members already have accounts but may need to be updated to include your chosen log in information (user name and password). See our homepage for instructions.
