If you used to be a member and hold an Absolute Demit, or were dropped for non-payment, notify the Secretary of your desire to return. (Prorated dues will apply, plus a fee for Reinstatement.)
Your application will be processed as a new one, with the exception that you will not be required to participate in the Initiation ritual (assuming you are, again, elected for membership).
