ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP: Pay $395 and select an unlimited number of courses throughout the year.

Pay one fee in the fall and select an unlimited number of courses from 90+ offerings throughout the year  (nominal fees may apply for special courses with limited enrollment such as the wine appreciation class in which case, there would be a materials fee, but the class would still be free for annual members).  We suggest waiting until the fall term to select this option so that all three terms (fall 2015, spring 2016, and summer 2016) can be used to enjoy the courses. Annual Membership fee is non-refundable.
