In addition to being in good standing with GUE, we ask that all members contribute annual dues of $30, the first installment of which is payable at time of membership application. Full membership privileges include participating in group events and activities, participating in diving or in-water activities at the level of certification as established by GUE, a GUE Seattle t-shirt, and voting privileges within the organization.
Per IRS Publication 526, your membership dues for GUE Seattle are 100% tax deductible, as we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
GUE instructors who are situated outside of the general Pacific Northwest Region may be granted honorary membership at the discretion of the board. Honorary membership allows instructors access to online resources, and should the instructor be able to participate in a project, they may do so in accordance with their GUE certification level. Instructors receiving honorary membership will not have voting privileges within the organization.
To be considered for honorary membership, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
