    Dues are for a year long membership which starts from the date of payment. These dues quickly pay for themselves by the discounts given that many local stores honor to MAAST members.

    We are trying to make our club better, having more educational meetings, more door prizes, raffle items and guest speakers. We also have the routine maintenance items like website, food for meetings,, membership dues to national marine organizations, and print/publication fee's. Membership dues allow our club to keep afloat and make all of this possible. As always, the website portion of the club remains free but charters due get some perks.



    Why collect dues?
    1. Keep MAAST afloat.
    2. Funds club meetings so the host doesn't have to pay for it all out of pocket.
    3. Allows for website improvements / maintanence.
    4. Allows us to bring in "expert" speakers at meetings.
    5. Higher quality raffles, higher quality meetings, higher quality club!
    6. Eligibility to run for a club office.
    7. Eligibility to serve as a moderator.
    8. Eligibility to VOTE!
    9. Discounts at participating LFS's and online vendors.
