Join Us

Chessie chapter’s dues are $10. If you’ve already joined SinC National, you can join the chapter by sending your check–made out to SinC Chesapeake Chapter–and a copy of our membership/renewal form to:

Sisters in Crime, Chessie Chapter
c/o Donna Andrews
11654 Plaza America Drive #313
Reston, VA 20190

**But remember–before you can join a local chapter, you need to be a member of SinC National.  If you haven’t already joined, see the SinC National  for membership information and an application form.**

Please note that when you join SinC National, you may receive information about which chapter would be your nearest local chapter–you still have to join the chapter separately.

Although our membership year runs from January to December, if you join after September 30, your dues will count not just for the remainder of the year but also for the following year.
