All renewals require a newly completed renewal form with your current information, your dues payment, and if you are a FULL member, proof that you are a current member with Clowns of America International (COAI) by including a copy of your membership card. Your completed form should either be sent to the Alley via mail or returned at an Alley meeting. If you are a family member and wish to vote, run for Board of Directors, or have your clown name protected you will need to show proof of COAI membership via a copy of your membership card.

Alley Membership cards will only be mailed to you if you supply a self-addressed stamped envelope with your payment. Cards will be brought to the Alley meetings if you would prefer to pick them up in person.
