How to Join
Join or renew your membership online right here; you can pay by credit card or Paypal via a secure server. Your membership data will be automatically and immediately added to our e-mail list and member directory.
You may also join CHNY in person at any of our monthly programs, which are open to the public. We look forward to seeing you!
Please note: If you pay by check to join or renew your membership, please note that your membership may take several weeks to process, as we are "staffed" entirely by volunteers. Thus you will not receive program and event information until the application is processed. To avoid this delay, please join or renew online! Thank you very much for your understanding.
