Upon gaining acceptance as a Signature Member, you will be billed to bring your dues up to Signature level. Review dates and additional details are listed on the Signature Review web page.

Out-of-Town Membership

Out-of-Town membership is for individuals residing 75 miles or more from Cincinnati.

But, if you’re in town let us know and feel free to attend any scheduled activity along with local membership.
