Membership dues are $15 per person.  If more than one family member wants to join, the second family member receives their membership for only $7.50.  This family member discount can be used for up to four additional family members.


Membership runs for the calendar year from January through December. We hold meetings once a month on the third Thursday of each month through October (We take November and December off for the holidays).


A one-year membership includes:

  • All meeting handouts

  • Guest speakers and lecturers

  • Access to special events and activities

  • Several editions of Nectar News - SEMBA's official newsletter

In addition, your one-year membership helps us maintain the website and the community native butterfly garden in front of Nankin Mills.
