How does membership work?
CLUG Membership works as follows. If you attend a meeting, join the mailing list, attend an event or otherwise make it known to the CLUG Secretary that you wish to join CLUG, you are a Tier 1 member. There are no fees associated with becoming a Tier 1 member. You can, however, purchase a $20 per year Tier 2 membership which entitles you to voting privileges and discounts from some of our Sponsors. Check the Sponsors page for further details on where your CLUG membership card will get you a discount.
CLUG’s operating expenses are fairly low but from time to time we do need to pay for things like power / networking at trade shows, web hosting, etc. Previously these expenses were often covered by individuals but as we grow larger it makes sense for CLUG to be able to cover itself.
CLUG also tries to promote itself so from time to time we get advertising materials printed and such things cost money also.
Is there a fee for attending the meetings?
No! Anyone can attend meetings at no charge.
