See the "Become a Member" page to download a membership form. The same form can be used for new or renewing members.
How do I post an event on the calendar? plus
At this time, all requests to post events must be submitted to NYCMER for review. Members and non-members are welcome to submit program announcements that will be of general interest to NYCMER members. The NYCMER calendar is not intended for promotion of an organization or its general programming, unless the program will be offered free or at a discount to NYCMER members but at a charge to others. All requests to post an event are subject to review by the Steering Committee. If you event is approved, it will be listed on the NYCMER on-line calendar free-of-charge. Submit events for the on-line calendar to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to send an event to NYCMER's membership e-mail list (approximately 300 members) in addition to the on-line calendar posting, there is a $20 fee for a one-time e-mail. Submit events for NYCMER's e-mail list to email@example.com Thank you. In the event that NYCMER collaborates with another organization to co-produce an event, NYCMER will cover marketing that event to its own members. The collaborating organization will pay for marketing the event to its own members. All questions about collaborations should be directed to the Membership Coordinator.
Are there discounted memberships for students? plus
