Hello Club and Workout Group Contacts,
Beginning today, your prospective members have two registration options available online:
1) An end-of-year 2014 membership, which is discounted from the full-year 2014 price. It expires on December 31, 2014; or
2) A “year-plus” membership, which is a 2014 membership PLUS a prepaid 2015 membership (available only online). The way this works is that the member makes his LMSC and club selection and receives his 2014 card immediately. Then, in November, the member will be asked to confirm his LMSC and club choice for 2015. When he does that he will be issued his 2015 membership card, which will expire on December 31, 2015.
Note that the “year-plus” membership includes an additional $10 discount off the USMS portion of the 2014 membership fee. Each LMSC is different because they all charge different fees, but here is one example of the two options that are presented to a prospective member today. This example is for a member who registers in the Arizona LMSC:
OPTION 1, 4-MONTH END-OF-YEAR 2014 MEMBERSHIP example:
2014 USMS fee: $25.00
2014 Arizona-LMSC fee: $3.00
OPTION 2, YEAR-PLUS (2014+2015) MEMBERSHIP example:
2014 USMS fee: $15.00
2014 Arizona-LMSC fee: $3.00
2015 USMS fee: $37.00
2015 Arizona-LMSC fee: $13.00
The “year-plus” membership is designed to provide the prospective member with another option that he might find more attractive than the end-of-year option.
Prospective members may join USMS by visiting:
I hope you are all enjoying the Labor Day holiday!
