Choose Schenectady as Your Chapter

Membership in the chapter of your choice is included in all levels of ADK membership. In addition to the benefits all ADK members receive, Schenectady Chapter members receive The Lookout, the chapter's bi-monthly newsletter, and chapter special announcements. Furthermore, only chapter members may vote at meetings on officers and policies, and hold elective office in the chapter.

Members of other chapters who wish to receive a copy of The Lookout can "affiliate" with the Schenectady Chapter for an additional $10.50 when they join or renew their ADK membership.
