Welcome to the SDGRS website!

Note to all:

PLEASE, read this ENTIRE page, many people email in questions that are answered on this very page, about dues, how to get a login, etc.

Renew your SDGRS membership now if you have not already done so:

SDGRS dues were due (no pun intended) in January. Renewal is $30, unless you are having your newsletter surface mailed to you, then it is $45.
