NEW MEMBERS in 2017: Welcome to the DAS! At the end of 2017, you will receive a renewal bill for a prorated amount for your second year of membership, equal to the number of months between the month you joined and the end of your joining year, times $3.00. (For example if you join in July 2017 you would pay $18.00 [6 mo x $3] to renew in January, 2018.)  
(NOTE: DAS members reactivating their membership after a delay in renewal will not receive the prorating discount.)
