Membership in the American Primrose Society runs on the calendar year and includes four issues of our journal “Primroses”; the first issue being Winter, on to Spring, Summer and with Fall, the last issue for the year.  As we are at the end of the calendar year, renewals for 2018 are due around November 15, 2017.

You can use PayPal to renew on the APS website, the membership application form found there or use the renewal form tucked into the Fall issue of “Primroses”.  Submit payment to our Treasurer:
