Renew MSDA Membership for 2021

This page is for current members only to make their annual $10 membership renewal payment. 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.)

You may pay securely online by clicking the Pay Now button at the bottom of this page. You can use PayPal or a credit or debit card even if you don’t have, and don’t want, a PayPal account.

PayPal does not share any of your credit card information with MSDA.

Important notes:

  • PayPal sends MSDA your name and email address, and we use this to match your payment to our membership list. If the name or email address associated with your payment account is different from the one MSDA has on file (the one we use to send you the monthly newsletter and member notices), please type the correct information for MSDA in the text field before you click on “Pay Now”.
  • If you would like to make a single payment for two or more members (e.g., you and your spouse), you can adjust the quantity on the very first screen you encounter at PayPal. If you are paying for more than one, please first type the names and email addresses in the text field so we can credit your dues properly.
  • Note that there are no family memberships or discounts for members in the same household: dues are simply $10 per person.
  • Dues payments are not refundable.
  • Thank-You!

Current members also may send a $10 check for their 2021 dues, payable to “MSDA”, to:
Pamela DeSmidt
9340 Chestnut Knolls Dr.
Fairfax, VA 22032

2021 membership dues must be received by MSDA before the start of the Annual Membership Meeting at 7 pm on Saturday March 6, 2021. If dues are not received by the deadline, the membership will be canceled.
