SFHA Membership

More than 100 individuals and groups have registered to be Members of Sandhills Family Heritage Association. Association Membership has been an important aspect of the SFHA organization since its founding. SFHA does not have a voting membership. However, the role of our Members is critical to our success and effectiveness in our communities.  SFHA Members volunteer, advocate and support - all on behalf of SFHA and the community. 

SFHA membership includes five dues-paying categories and an honorary membership category, which is not required to pay dues. Dues-paying Members pay a small annual fee while Lifetime Members pay a one-time fee. Please contact SFHA to ask about dues amounts.

Member Guidelines
