Do I have to pay to be a member?

No, membership in CHS is free! However, we do need money to run the organization, and that is why we ask you to contribute whatever you can. Although nobody affiliated with the Colorado Herpetological Society receives any pay for their work, it does take money to exist:
  • To pay the annual fees associated with remaining a certified Colorado nonprofit corporation.
  • To sponsor the cost of medicating and feeding rescued pets until they can be rehabilitated (if necessary) and eventually adopted.
  • To pay for meeting location services.
  • To pay for booth space at conventions and expos. Many times we are granted this space by the organizers since we are non-profit, and we are always very grateful for their generosity.
  • To pay for hosting and maintenance of the CHS web site.
  • To pay for our post office box.
  • To purchase materials held in our constantly-growing CHS library.
  • To pay for advertising.
  • To pay for operating expenses such as banking fees, office materials, and computer software.
If you would like to make a donation to CHS, you may do so via our payments page.
