NHCC Dues are due

FYI - this applies to new members only "join after March 1st and your dues include the following year membership as well." Existing members that pay their dues late do not carry over their membership to the following season. Existing members should pay the season dues before the October competition in order to remain listed in the photo contest pro software to compete. Dues are for one season for all existing members (i.e. if you pay their dues June 2014 because you want to attend a field trip and have not yet paid then those dues are 2013-14 season and do not carry over to the 2014-15 season)
