Permanent members may request a retirement of membership. All requests are put in chronological order and initiation fees (minus a required sales tax) are returned when we are at full membership. Only requests received by May 1 of a year will be eligible for payment in that year. It can take a few years to receive initiation fees, depending on the number of retirees and fluctuating membership. Initiation refund checks are usually issued in the fall of each year.
