Why become a member of the Abell Improvement Association?
Membership is about showing your support for the activities of the AIA - continuing to make our neighborhood a great place to live. Many of us chose to live here because this neighborhood is special and it is up to all of us to take care of and continue to improve it. Everyone benefits from work we do.
Your annual dues of only $10 per person make a huge difference. Our goal is to have 300 members this year. Let’s make that happen! Your contribution helps to cover basic operating costs, like printing newsletters, costs of community events, Open Space maintenance, initial Street Fair costs, and more. (You don’t need to be a member to participate in social events or to receive the newsletter, but your support is appreciated.)
