Message from the Chairman

 
Gentlemen,

I hope everyone had a great Halloween! Now we are moving into the holiday season. In our community, this can be a time of greater depression and loneliness. So I ask all of you to reach out to your club brothers and bring them into your holiday plans when you can. Many of us have had to create our own leather families of two, three, five or more... I ask you to hold a place at your table and extend your family through this season. And don’t forget our club is once again hosting a free holiday play party on Sunday December 10th from 2–6pm at Blow Buddies for all of our club brothers. A little bit of sex and play can brighten any mood.

2018 Membership Dues

2017 is flying by and we’re talking about winter holidays already. As you prepare for the festive winter season, please take a moment to log in to 15sf.org and renew your membership in The 15 Association. We hope you enjoyed some of our many events this past year, ranging from Anniversary and Members’ Weekends, to our monthly play parties, to our outdoor dungeon at Dore Alley, and Boot Camp. Your fraternal committee is hard at work making plans for more in 2018!

Please go to 15sf.org and log in. You’ll see a reminder to renew. Click on the link to the “Renewal Page” and fill in your information. You can use a credit card to renew on-line or you can mail in a check as you prefer.* Please don’t forget to sign your release form at the lower part of the page to avoid delays entering our events in 2018.

While you’re on the website, please check your information by clicking “Update Your Profile” below the ‘Member and Guests’ list on the home page. Correct any information that has changed or is otherwise inaccurate. Remember to go all the way to the bottom of the page to give us permission to list you in our member directory. That’s where you tell us what information you want to be made available to all members.

*Please Know: We don’t turn anyone away for lack of funds. If you need some assistance covering your annual dues, we can help. Indicate on the renewal page your request for assistance. If you can, please consider a donation to our charitable funds. They are how we help insure none of our brothers are left out because of a lack of funds.

— Al Parso-York, Membership Chairman
