Happy New Year & Memberful Update

We hope that 2021 is, so far, kinder to everyone than 2020 was!

A big change that want to inform you of is that the Society has moved its membership platform from PayPal to Memberful.  This is for a few reasons, most pertinent of which is that Memberful will do yearly renewals, rather that us having to send reminders and you needing to remember if you’ve renewed. We have already made the update to the Society’s Membership page, so if you go there, you’ll be brought directly to the correct page. As always, if you need a different way to pay, please contact us at info@dfwsociety.org.

If you recently paid for your annual membership through PayPal – not to worry! We’ve received your payment so you will be receiving the upcoming issue of the Society’s Journal (Issue #3, the 2020 issue).  Or in other words, if you recently renewed or signed up for your annual IDFWS membership via PayPal, there is no need for you to do this again via Memberful at this time.

**NOTE** Issue #3 is the 2020 issue, even though you’ll receive it in 2021. It will be labeled as such.

Just to review our membership levels, please see the below details, or see our Membership page.
