NOTE: A purely SMDPA “Junior” membership is one that does not require filing lineage papers with GSMD; i.e., they are not recognized as members by GSMD, but they must join SMDPA prior to their 18th birthday.  This is a simple, low-cost annual membership, as described below under Junior Membership Dues.

Are you an incoming Dual Member or Transferee from another Mayflower Society?

To be accepted as an SMDPA member, you must have been a member-in-good-standing in your current Mayflower Society, and you will be invoiced for the SMDPA current year’s dues.
If you transfer after September 30, your dues will be applied toward the following calendar year’s dues, and you will be responsible for any difference the following year.

Emeritus Members:  These are SMDPA members who have celebrated 50 years or more with SMDPA.  Emeritus members are treated as Life Members.

Life Membership:

Traditionally, Life Membership has been a popular means for families to guarantee that their personal membership or those of their children or grandchildren will last a lifetime, for a one-time fee.  This program has been available to new and existing members. No more dues!

Life Membership options are a State Society offering and is non-refundable and non-transferable to other members or Mayflower Societies.

WE WILL NOT ABANDON OUR CURRENT LIFE MEMBERSHIP COMMITMENT. 
However, until we have a solution that is fiscally responsible, and benefits both SMDPA and potential Life Members, we will be suspending new Life Membership for the foreseeable future. This is in line with what many Mayflower Societies are planning. 

EFFECTIVE 10/24/2020, WITH SMDPA EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AND BOARD OF ADVISORS APPROVAL, NO NEW LIFE MEMBERSHIP REQUESTS WILL BE ACCEPTED. 

NOTE: If you attain Emeritus Status your Life Member status will be recognized.
