Membership is voting (full membership at $90 annually) or non-voting (supporting membership at $45 annually), due at the end of each year. Membership is prorated, if you newly join during the year. It’s not essential to have a storefront in downtown Port Orchard to be a member. You only need to care about the future of our community and want to participate in helping to enhance and promote downtown. You do not have to be a bricks and mortar business in downtown Port Orchard to belong — you only need to care about Port Orchard and want to be involved in the community.
