The DKLAA understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has inflicted financial hardship
and uncertainty on individuals during this time, and in recognition of transitioning
to "normal", the DKLAA has decided to again cut dues in half for the 2022-2023 membership
year. However, we greatly appreciate you making the full membership fee payment if
you have the means to do so.
