First Class Mailing for The Courier

For members in the United States that have elected to receive The Courier via Bulk rate mail, by default, the USPS does not forward bulk rate publications, and The Courier will be discarded by the USPS. However, if ‘Premium Forwarding’ service is selected with the USPS, for a fee, the USPS will forward bulk rate publications.

For members that have seasonal or multiple addresses during the year or if you are planning to move, it is suggested to change from Bulk rate to First Class mail of The Courier. This will ensure that your edition of The Courier is forwarded to your home.

The cost to change from Bulk rate to First Class mail of The Courier is prorated based on when the online form is completed:

January – April: $25.00
May – August: $16.67
September – December: $8.33

Please complete the online form to change from Bulk rate to First Class mail.

Add Household Member

To add an Associate or Foreign member to your existing household membership, please complete the online application. To add a Junior member to your existing household member, please complete this Junior member application.

The household member's name and sponsor’s name (where applicable) will be submitted to the Board of Directors, and published in the next Board meeting minutes in order to solicit comments from club members. After the household member's name has been published in the minutes, during Executive Session at any meeting of the Board of Directors, the application to join the PWDCA will be voted on. Please allow for up to 3 months for the household member's application to be processed.
