How Do We Join HUGS?

Please wait until June 1st to submit membership requests for the 2015-2016 school year.  We will not begin processing requests until that date.
In order to join the HUGS group, you must read the Statement of Faith and Statement of Purpose and then sign the Membership Guidelines.  The Statement of Faith and Membership Guidelines (found under Statement of Faith link) must be printed off and mailed to Kelly Brown (1112 NW Rolling Rock Road, Ankeny, IA 50023) along with your annual dues. 
Yearly membership dues are $15.00 for first-time members.
Renewal rate is $15 when enrolling between June 1st and September 1st for the upcoming school year and increase to $25 when renewing after September 1st
Checks are to be made payable to “HUGS”.  
If you are joining for the first time, you must ALSO sign up online by clicking on the "Request Membership" link at the top of the page.  Both steps must be done to complete the membership process.
Members are not required to host or plan an event.  All that is required of members is for them to turn in a signed copy of the Membership Guidelines and to pay dues.  But members are of course welcome to help out by serving the group in any number of ways.
