​​​DUES

  For all the members who’ve paid their dues... thank you! For those whose dues are now in arrears they have now increased to $40. You’ll be receiving a letter shortly about this. Please make every effort to have them paid by the end of May. Drop off your payment or mail to: AOH, 148 Main St., Binghamton, NY 13905. We’ve already paid your pre-capita to the National and State AOH’s. These monies are needed to help with our charitable contributions and offset some of our operating costs. If you have any issues with making your dues payment please contact one of our officers. In addition, if you’ve moved or plan on moving anytime in the future please let us know of your address change.

MAJOR DEGREE

  If you’re interested in obtaining the AOH’s Major Degree, which educates the member on the history, culture and traditions of the Inner Chamber of the AOH, please contact our President, Bob Wylie. This will facilitate the planning of the future event.
