Any person of Scottish birth or descent, or of Scottish relationship through marriage, or any person who is simply moved by their love of the Scottish people and things Scottish (what we call "Scottish by inclination"), may be admitted as an active member. A prospective member, having submitted an application along with an initiation fee and first year's dues, will be presented to the membership for election to the Society.
All new members pay $45 to join: $25 dues plus a $20 initiation fee. Subsequent annual renewals are $50. (Spouses of members may renew for $25. Spouses have the same voting rights as other active members.) Children and grandchildren of members—up to age 18—may join for no charge as non-voting members.
