    Please send a printable form for 2014 so that I can renew my membership. I wish to pay by check to an address provided by CTA.

    What happened to the PayPal Option?

      Hi Jim,

      Our system has been upgraded to use the Square payment system. Under our Become a Member page there is still the option to pay online, it’s just no longer through PayPal.

    I just renewed my membership through the new Wild Apricot system. I had been dreading the experience because I’m easily confused by new (to me) online procedures. It was surprisingly easy!
    Way to go CTA!
