CMBA announces new membership plan

CMBAThe Cedar Mill Business Association is changing the way we do payments to give people more options and added convenience. If you sign up as a subscriber, you get to lock into the rate for $110/year.

You can pay the annual fee of $110 but it won't lock in your rate, which will inevitably increase a little bit every year or two. You can also opt to pay monthly now as a subscriber for $15/month if you are still undecided about an annual membership.

The biggest advantage to subscribing is that you will be paying automatically without the hassle of wondering if you have made your payment or waiting to get an invoice, etc. and you can lock in your rates. It also allows new members to join for a full year at any time during the year, rather than paying for a partial year and then renewing at the beginning of the year again. Click on the Membership link on our website to choose your option. As an alternative, you can pay at the annual party, above.
