About Membership

Annual dues enable members to maintain a vital communication line with the entire scleroderma community. Members receive the quarterly national magazine, The Voice, and notices of meetings and special events. Dues help to defray daily operating costs, thus permitting more of its income from donations and fundraisers to be targeted for scleroderma research.
