Perks of Being a Member
While you aren't required to pay membership dues to play games or participate in D&D, membership dues are what keeps the club alive. Other than going toward fun extras at meetings, dues go toward marketing materials for getting new members, new board games, game storage, and other materials necessary for basic club functions.
That said, money does go towards the perks that members get to enjoy listed below.
