Membership

Please Note Change in Dues

Dues for 2016 are $36; however, if you pay your dues by January 31, you will receive a $6 discount.

It's never too late to renew your membership.  Dues are only $36 per year.  If you pay your dues by January 31, your dues will only be $30.  What a bargain!  Don't hesitate to join or renew your membership today.

If you're an existing member or a new member, the "/membership/Membership_Registration___Renewal_Form_2016.pdf" at the bottom of this page (on the left side) is the form you need to complete.

RENEWING MEMBERS:  We need you to complete the form for our records.  It's a good way for us to make sure we have your current contact information.  The cost to renew your membership is $36 if you pay after January 31.  However, we encourage you to pay your dues before January 31 so we can plan and budget for the coming year.  As an added bonus, if you pay your dues before January 31, you get a $6 discount!

NEW MEMBERS:  Dues are $36 per year, but as a courtesy, if you join after March, we will prorate your dues for that year. If you join before January 31, you get a $6 discount and your dues will only be $30.

COLLEGE STUDENTS:  Dues are 1/2 of the regular annual dues.  Student ID is required.

PAYMENT:  You can mail us a check (see info on form) or you can pay online through Paypal.  Just go to the "Payments" link on the left side of this page and follow the instructions.

If you have any questions, please email us at panhandlewriters@gmail.com.

How to Make Sure You Receive

Our Email Announcements and Newsletters

(Plagiarism Alert:  This information was copied from the Internet.)

If you have a Gmail email account:

First, add our email address (panhandlewriters@gmail.com) to your Gmail contacts list.

If you hadn’t noticed, your Gmail has three tabs/inboxes:  Primary, Social, and Promotions.  Gmail routes our emails (announcements and newsletters) into your Promotions inbox.

How to Get Future Emails into the Primary Inbox:

Move our email messages to the Primary inbox. This is the most effective way to teach Gmail to deliver future messages to the Primary inbox.  The best way to ensure our emails appear in the Primary inbox is to manually set this up in your Gmail account. There are three different ways to ensure that an email will show in a specific inbox.

Drag and Drop

The easiest way to move an email into your Primary inbox is to left-click and hold onto the email to drag it from the Promotions inbox over to the tab entitled Primary.

Release the mouse to drop the email into the newly selected tab.  Once dropped, Gmail displays a yellow box that asks if you want to make this change permanent.  Click Yes to ensure that all messages from panhandlewriters@gmail.com appear in the Primary inbox going forward.

Right Click

Similar to the drag-and-drop option, right-click on the email in to bring up a small list of options.  Click the Move to tab option and select the tab/inbox you want to move the email to.  A yellow box will display that asks if you want to make this change permanent.  Click Yes to ensure that all messages from panhandlewriters@gmail.com will appear in the Primary inbox going forward.

Search And Filter

Search for panhandlewriters@gmail.com in Gmail.  When the results populate, click the small grey arrow to the right of the search bar to bring up the advanced search criteria.  Click the Create a filter with this search link at the bottom of the results.

Near the bottom of the advanced filter window, you’ll see a Categorize as section with a drop-down menu where you can select the tab/inbox you want.  Once you’ve created the filter, all the emails from that address that are currently in your inbox will be moved to the Primary inbox.  Any new emails from panhandlewriters@gmail.com will be delivered directly to the Primary inbox.

Note - When using the Search and Filter option, it is recommended that you check the box for Never send it to Spam  as this will help to ensure better deliverability of our emails.

If you have a Yahoo email account:

First, add our email address (panhandlewriters@gmail.com) to your Yahoo contacts list/address book. 

To move our emails from your Spam folder, locate our email and click it to open it.

Click the “Not Spam” button in the toolbox to immediately send the email to the Inbox folder.  Emails from the same sender will not be treated as junk mail anymore and will be sent to the Inbox folder.

Other Email Accounts:

First, add our email address (panhandlewriters@gmail.com) to your Yahoo contacts list/address book.  If that does not resolve the issue, try the suggestions in the Gmail and Yahoo sections, above.
