Membership

Membership in GLAC allows you to participate in the GLAC forum, attend any event you wish, receive a monthly newsletter of upcoming events and activities, and borrow club gear. You will meet adventure-minded people who enjoy a variety of year-round outdoor activities. You might learn a new outdoor activity from skilled GLAC members who are always willing to share their knowledge with you. Exploring new territory is more fun and less intimidating when shared with someone who has experience.

DUES
Dues are $10 per family* per year, payable by check or cash, due upon joining, and renewed each January. January dues are waived for those joining within the last 4 months of the previous year. Dues cover the costs of club operation (newsletter, website, brochures, meeting room rental). Whatever is left over is used to purchase gear for the club or contributed to causes that align with our mission.
* For GLAC membership purposes, a family consists of a single or a couple and their family members that live at the same address.
