Join Us!

To be added to our email list, email info@macpsociety.com or use the message box below. We will notify you of any upcoming meetings/events. For the purposes of planning the locations of our future meetings, please include your location in the email. 

We also offer memberships, which brings extra benefits. These include: 

  • Auction selling privileges (but anyone can donate plants to the auction)

  • Auction of special specimen plants (outside the general auction)

  • Subsidies, when applicable (e.g. hotel subsidy on field trips)

  • 10% discount at the Carnivorous Plant Nursery in Smithsburg, MD

  • Members-only meals or events, including some field trips

Several membership packages are available: 

  • Individual (over age 18): $20/year

  • Family (single address): $30/year

  • Student (individual under age 18 or enrolled in a university): $5/year

  • Corporate: $200/year

  • Lifetime: Any membership who has given significant service to MACPS can be nominated for lifetime membership with 3/4 vote of the board. Membership does not expire and there are no dues. 

Membership purchased in 2021 will expire on December 31, 2022. You get two years for the price of one, as we are not sure when we can resume in-person meetings due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Dues are not prorated. All proceeds from membership dues go directly towards operating costs of meetings (food, guest speaker honoraria and travel, meeting venue fees, maintenance of the website, etc.).

To apply for membership, please fill out this form and send the appropriate amount by PayPal to treasurer@macpsociety.com. Submitting the form and paying does not guarantee membership; we review each form and will let you know if you are approved for membership. In the event that you are not approved, you will receive a full refund! You can also apply for membership in person at our meetings.
