Best Practices in Renewing:
1) Fill out completely.
Even though you did not have any changes throughout the year, the volunteer tthat assembles the data for print in the roster, does not know that. He or she is looking for verfication of information.

2) Consider adding cell phone numbers: For those who plan on cruising with other club members this summer...and are in a different port, often we are not close to our boat radios when a member is trying to reach us. The marina just may be big enough so that it is difficult to locate where in the port the rest of the fleet is. Sometimes cell phones are the best way to contact members.

The option to purchase is on the Membership Renewal Form. When you become a member, you are given the Membership Booklet with the latest updates (until they are updated & printed for the following year.
