The cost is something super affordable, and will get you some cool window clings, early notification of our events, and most importantly, puts you in a good position to help other bakers. Until we get this membership thing going, please sign up for our mail list and we’ll let you know when it’s happening. All of the dues go to the scholarship fund (minus whatever it costs to process the transaction and mailing fees), and once a year we will send out requests for applications.
