When you complete the online new member/renewal form, you will receive a copy of your entries via email.  So will the MCA.  However, your joining/renewal process is not finished until the MCA receives a copy of the PayPal payment notification.  Whether you have a PayPal account or use your credit card, PayPal will verify your payment to the MCA. This means there willg be two separate emails for your online joining/renewal.  Both are necessary in order to complete the process.

You may prefer to setup a Recurring Membership Auto Renewal. To do so you will need to set up a PayPal Account. Please click here to setup your Recurring Membership Auto Renewal Account. Using the Recurring Membership Auto Renewal your account will be charged once on an annual bases for your Membership.

If you would prefer not to join or renew on-line, please click here for a printable PDF form to join or renew by mail.

If you are paying online you DO NOT need a PayPal account to make one payment.  To pay with a credit card, simply choose “Don’t have a PayPal account?” on the next page.  PayPal will process the credit card transaction without a PayPal account.
