The National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter membership year runs from October 1 – September 30 each year and membership dues are $75 annually. The Board of Governors met to approve the Chapter’s 2022 budget and agreed unanimously to once again decrease membership dues from $75 to $60 as a way to give back to our members.  If you would prefer an invoice instead of paying online, please contact us.
