Lifetime Membership

A Lifetime of Recorder Playing
What to know about Lifetime Memberships

How is Lifetime different from a regular membership?
Lifetime members receive the same benefits that standard members receive -- for instance the quarterly magazine, Members Library Music, and free access to all the resources on the ARS website -- but never have to renew!
Lifetime Member Anne Timberlake
How long is the membership term?
As long as the member is alive.

How much does it cost?
It is a one-time payment of $1,000.

Is the membership fee tax-deductible?
75% of this membership fee is tax-deductible -- please consult your tax advisor for more information. 
Why should I become a Lifetime member?
This is a wonderful way to show your lifelong support for your recorder community and commitment to the ARS. As a side benefit, you never have to remember to renew.
