Membership Costs Membership in Perpetuity (MIP)
This is a one-time payment of dues which may, under certain circumstances, be paid incrementally. An MIP is paid to the
tax-deductible fund known as the National Sojourners Trust Fund in the amount of $255.00. This membership is welcomed by all Chapters of the Order. However, should a member wish to join another Chapter as an MIP, the amount would be reduced to $155.00. In each case, in the memo of the check it should be noted with the letters MIP and the Chapters name and number. Some Chapters are only MIP chapters, so you should check with the Chapter Secretary for accurate payment costs.
