Online Renewal FAQ:


Why am I getting these emails? I renewed by US mail or in person.

Until mail/walk-in renewals are entered into the system (by the very small and all volunteer membership committee staff) the system will only be aware of online renewals. Note: We are moving to an all online process.

Are my online payment transactions processed in a secure manner?

The major credit card issuers created PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliance standards. These are stringent standards to protect personal information and ensure security for online payment transactions. As part of our PCI compliance (and our payment system), our payment processing systems are scanned regularly by Trustwave, a recognized 3rd party tester, according to PCI requirements. 


Does the club store my credit card information?

No. Credit card information is securely transmitted to Authorize.NET where it is processed. Authorize.NET then returns the status of the payment transaction. Only the status of the transaction (i.e. that your payment went through) is recorded. When you pay online, SCCSFA has no ability to see your credit card details. 


What kind of security are you using to protect us?

To ensure security and privacy of your data, we’ve provided traffic encryption (https) capability. Traffic encryption ensures that data entered into the online forms (e.g. membership application, event registration, etc.) as well as data transferred from servers back to visitors is protected from snooping.


How do I get my membership card when I renew online?

Your card will be mailed to you within 7 to 10 days.


Is my spouse covered by my membership?

No. A few years ago the club replaced the family membership category with individual membership categories for Member and Spouse. Your spouse will receive their own renewal invoice if they had Spouse membership last year. If they were not a Spouse member last year they will need to apply for membership in the usual manor. Spouse membership is $25.


Do you receive my check?

Mail-in renewal checks will be processed manually over the next few weeks. You will see the check clear when your renewal has been processed.

Yes. You get a $10 discount on an annual renewal and the club receives $5. Check out the NRA Renewal renewal page here.

The best way to correct your NRA Membership Number is to do so online. Log into the system (reset your password if required - see the Step-by-Step Guide on how to do that), go to your profile page and enter the correct NRA Membership Number. 

We will be verifying it matches your name & address and is current.

Alternatively you can email the correct number to and ask the membership committee to update it for you but that will be slow and a lot of work to ask of one person.  


I joined the club a few months ago and thought my fee covered me for the partial year and next year. Do I have to renew and pay more?

When you join as a new member there is a $100 initiation fee plus a prorated amount to cover your membership for the current year until the end of September. As an example: if you joined half way through the year your total would be about $150. So, yes you do need to renew and pay the following year's due's. Dues as of 2015 are: Member $100, Member over 62 $75, Spouse $25.

Authorize.NET supports Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express


I was asked not to use my work e-mail address. Why is that?

We suggest that our members use a personal e-mail address for club business. You can use the one provided by your internet service provider (isp) or one of the free services such as gmail, yahoo, etc. It is not a formal club rule but is suggested as good practice. Apparently there are some intolerant and biased folks out there who don't appreciate law-abiding gun owners or our second amendment rights.
