AMERICAN DRUZE SOCIETY
The American Druze Society National Membership Committee is continuing to promote its Membership Campaign in collaboration with all the ADS Chapters.
Please click on ONLINE MEMBERSHIP REGISTRATION to join/renew your dues. Or click on MEMBERSHIP FORM to download the member application to complete and mail in with your dues.
Elections are approaching at both Chapter and National levels and members need to renew memberships by or before March 31 to be able to vote and run for office. Note that membership dues cover the calendar year (from Jan 1 to Dec 31).
We have the tough duty to recruit and retain members of their communities and some may ask: "Why do I need to join the ADS?"
WHY NOT? is the first answer to that important question. And, of course, the Membership Committee is here to explain better what privileges come with this membership. Please share the following with every member of your community.
