Renew MSDA Membership for 2022

This page is for current members only to make their annual $10 membership renewal payment. If you are a member, you should have received an email on January 7th asking you to renew.

If you are not already an MSDA member, or are not sure whether you are a member, please contact Pamela DeSmidt ( for information before sending money. You cannot join MSDA just by paying dues — you need to apply for membership first.

After you fill out the short form below and click “Renew and Pay” you will be sent to PayPal to securely complete your online payment. Major credit cards and PayPal are accepted. However, you do not need to have, or create, a PayPal account to pay online. PayPal does not share your credit card information with MSDA.

Once PayPal confirms your payment, they will send you back to this website and automatically email their confirmation (though it may not arrive immediately). If you don’t see the PayPal email, please check your spam/junk folder.

Important notes:

  • You can use this form to renew for up to two members (e.g., you and your spouse).
  • There are no family memberships or discounts for members in the same household: dues are simply $10 per person.
  • Dues payments are not refundable. If you pay twice, or pay and are not a member, MSDA will keep the overpayment as a donation.
  • Thank-You!

Membership dues must be received by MSDA before the start of the Annual Membership Meeting, to be held at Howard County Fairgrounds after Best-in-Show judging on Saturday, March 5, 2022. If dues are not received by the deadline, the membership will be canceled.

Please contact Pamela DeSmidt ( if you have any questions.
