embership Update

Recently The Ohio State Alumni Association unveiled a new method for alumni clubs and societies to collect membership dues. After a lot of careful consideration, OSUDC decided that this new method was beneficial both to the club, its current members, and all other alumni in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. We are putting the final touches on this new method currently, but coming at the beginning of March, there will be a new way to pay your OSUDC membership dues. This new method will make your Club dues both tax deductible and count towards your OSUAA sustaining membership, which makes you eligible for football tickets and other great benefits. Be on the lookout for a rollout email and an updated website!
