Hopefully you are a member of the Mt Washington Observatory in addition to being a member of this forum. It is a great organization to support.

This one is great - you get to sign up each year.

I must say that I enjoy the membership. I like the premium content on the website as well as reading Windswept magazine. It's the MWO's quarterly publication with lots of interesting articles and info. You also get access to the summit facility for touring and learning more about the observers lives on the mountain. The yearly membership dues are very reasonable also. It helps the organization continue to offer the top notch services we all enjoy. Have you been to the membership page yet?:

The club level memberships:


Club Level Members are invited to special Observatory events held throughout the year

NEW! Beginning January 1, 2007, members at the President's Club and 6,288 Club levels will have access to our new "Director's Circle", a special panel of MWO members which will meet periodically to discuss Observatory matters.

So to sum it up, if your level of support is at "club" level, then you are invited to special obs. events. If your level of support is of the highest 2 then you are also a member of the "directors circle".

Remember, all the levels of giving are yearly and really are determined by whatever you feel comfortable with.
