Meeting Fees

Beginning in 2018, the meeting fee is $15 for members. The first meeting for new guests is $15, the second meeting is $25. 

The option to pre-pay your 2018 meeting fees is being implemented for the coming year. Members wishing to prepay meeting fees can do so via the PayPal button below. There are two options: a six-month advance prepayment or a one year option that offers a discount.

Note: This is for the 6 meetings from the date of the pre-payment, not for a random set of meetings. The 12-month option is for the 2018 calendar year. If you are not a regular attendee, we advise against the pre-pay option.

Weekend parking in the adjacent lot is free. The meeting location will also be posted on a sign outside the Student Housing office. Both the Student Housing office and the Gastronome are easy to navigate to through any map program.
