Membership dues are good for eleven (11) months after the month you joined. So regardless to when you join, your membership is good for one year. For example, join in February, and your membership is good through January 31 of the following year. All money paid to I.L.C.A. as dues in excess of the regular dues for Active Members, Associate Members, and Crew Members shall be charitable contributions to the I.L.C.A.
