Become a Member of MHAA / Renew your Membership

Membership dues are $25 per year (plus a fee, depending on how you pay).   Memberships are now renewed one year from the last time you paid dues.

What do you get when you join MHAA?   As members already know, the main purpose of dues are to share the cost of the insurance required for some of our events,  to pay for the web site on Meetup.com for announcing our events, to pay for our Pro account on Zoom, and to pay some of our speakers for the presentations they make at our monthly meetings.  We also pay for maintenance of our equipment (telescopes, tripods, and imagers), publicity, and prizes we donate to local science fairs.  In general, member dues support the overall mission of the club to provide astronomy education and outreach to our local community. 

What do YOU get as a member of MHAA?  In addition to a warm fuzzy feeling for supporting the club, members receive the following benefits:
  • Members can borrow club telescopes, imagers, and other equipment.
  • Members can borrow from our DVD collection.
  • Members can participate in our on-line chat group at midhudsonastro.slack.com .
  • Members can participate in annual club events, like our Members Dinner and trips to High Point Scientific.
You can pay your dues in any of several ways:
  • On-line: Use Member Planet to pay on-line (for an extra $2.20 fee):  Member Planet.
  • On-Line: Use PayPal to pay on-line (for an extra $1 fee):  Pay $25 (plus $1 fee) to PayPal
  • In Person: Bring cash or a check for $25 (made out to MHAA) to one of our monthly star parties or to one of our monthly meetings (when they resume).
  • By Mail: Send a check for $25 (made out to MHAA) to the Treasurer at:  
Mid-Hudson Astronomical Association
Eric Myers, Treasurer
14 Spy Hill
Poughkeepsie, NY 12603

If you pay by cash or check it would help if you would use the form attached at the bottom of this page; but in any case, please provide your e-mail address with your payment so that we can add you to our mailing list and the Slack site.

Thank you for supporting MHAA!
