While EOMP is a charity, your dues are not tax deductible but any donations you make to EOMP are tax deductible and you will be provided a deduction slip from EOMP.

New yearly dues are due the day after porch panning each year and go to the porch panning the following year.  2017 membership runs from March 25 to March 26, 2018.

Once EOMP receives the application paperwork and payment, we send a membership card, maps, directions to the claims, newsletters, and password to the web newsletter and driving directions to each claim. Members may go to most of the claims at any time except when a outing is being held at that claim.

Dues are $100.00.  

Family members are allowed to participate in all regular activities.

Please allow several weeks for processing as we are all volunteers with no paid staff.   Thanks for understanding.
