GLLKA membership extends beyond the eight U.S. states and the Canadian province of Ontario that border the Great Lakes. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest and/or concern for our Great Lakes maritime heritage.
We invite you to join and actively participate in our Association. Your membership will say something very special about you. It not only shows that you care about our Great Lakes lighthouse heritage, but that you personally support the restoration of these magnificent structures for future generations to enjoy.
Membership includes quarterly receipt of The Beacon, which features a unique combination of photography, artwork, and articles designed to keep members informed of both lighthouse news and upcoming GLLKA events, as well as historical articles on Great Lakes lighthouses and keepers written by noted authors and historians.
Members are the first to learn of our upcoming excursions and events, many of which sell out very quickly, giving t=you a “leg up” for making your reservations before reservations are opened-
You will also receive special electronic newsletter from time to time which provide additional preservation and historical information, as well as member discounts on our excursions and merchandise.
Finally, you can take pride in the fact that part of your membership dues will be applied to our ongoing lighthouse preservation and education initiatives, ensuring that our lighthouse heritage will survive for future generations.
Please be aware that any sustaining membership fees (except Life) above the cost of an individual or Family Membership are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
