Why do you need to pay dues to belong?

Being a nonprofit 501(c)3 charity means we have to have a bookkeeper, accountant, and of course we maintain a website from Club Express.

We also pay for a booth at Women in Aviation (WAI) and we do scholarship interviews there. We've found that is the best way to attract great applicants for our scholarships is to recruit through WAI.

We work hard to keep our costs down, and board members do not get paid or compensated. (We do pay for hotel rooms at WAI and IFALPA... but only a portion of the total cost.)
