Cardkeys remain active as long as your membership is current. Cardkeys of those who have not renewed are deactivated on or shortly after April 15th.
If there is a lapse in your membership, hold onto your cardkey: it can be re-activated at a later date without paying for another cardkey.
If you lose a cardkey, contact the membership secretary for a replacement ($10 fee). The lost cardkey will be deactivated and a new one will be mailed to you. If you find the original cardkey again, it will NOT work. Avoid confusion by marking a “lost” card as de-activated. Hold on to it as it can be activated again if needed.
