  • Age 50 or above: ten times the regular high dues, total is US \$2,040
  • Age 40 or above: fifteen times the regular high dues, total is US \$3,060

An exception to the above is made for a person who is currently a member by reciprocity, has been a member by reciprocity for the previous two years and asserts the intention of continuing to be a member by reciprocity. Such a person may purchase life membership by a single payment of dues determined by the formula above but with regular high dues replaced with reciprocity dues (current totals are US \$510, US \$1,020, or US \$1,530).

Life memberships are non-refundable.
