Membership Changes

Changing Membership Types: Members may make changes to their memberships including adding/dropping members from the membership and freezing a membership. Members may freeze their membership for between 1 and 4 months during a 12 month period. Freezes affect everyone included in the membership. A $10 processing fee will be applied at the time the freeze is put in place. During the freeze period, monthly billing will be as follows: $5 for an individual; $10 for couples and single adult families; $15 for full family memberships. Fees subject to change.

Member and Guest Services require one full business day to process these changes therefore, any changes should be received the last day of the month before the change will take effect. For example, changes for February must be received by the last day of January. Changes must be requested in writing. Please contact the membership team. Call the membership office at 301-348-3800 with any questions.
