Chapter Membership

Our members come primarily from the communities of Bethany Beach, Clarksville, Dagsboro, Fenwick Island, Frankford, Lewes, Millsboro, Millville, Ocean City (MD), Rehoboth Beach and Selbyville, but members are welcome from anywhere.

South Coastal DE AARP Chapter 5226 is a membership organization for active adults ages 50+, representing AARP at the local level.

It’s easy to become a chapter member.  The only prerequisite is membership in the national AARP.  Your national membership and expiration date are on your membership card and also on the mailing label of AARP THE MAGAZINE.  Membership in National AARP does not make you a member of your local chapter. The membership year runs from September through August.  Members who join from May through August are counted as members both for the current and upcoming membership years.

Our standard (and preferred) method for distribution of the Chapter Newsletter is via email.  The newsletter CAN be sent through U.S. Mail, however, there is an upcharge of $3 for this service.  The Chapter does take a loss for each newsletter sent through the Post Office.  This method of receiving the newsletter should be reserved for those members who have no capabilities of electronic communication.  If there are two members in the same household, only ONE will receive the newsletter by US Mail and only one pays the $18 fee with the other the standard fee $15.
