Become a member

All are welcome in ESSCA and membership is now free

An active membership in ESSCA entitles all adults aged 18 years and older residing in the ESSCA neighborhood a vote in ESSCA elections and on special issues that may arise from time to time. Membership is not required to attend meetings, receive ESSCA communications and notices or to participate in ESSCA-sponsored events and programs.

You can become a member in one of three ways:

  • Via email: Each adult member of a household must register separately with their own email address. To sign up to be a member or renew using your email address, click here. We'll check your eligibility and you'll be notified by email of your membership status.

  • Via voicemail: Call (240) 242-7809‬ and leave your street address, and the names of all adult members of your household, and any shared email address you may be using. We'll check your eligibility and call you back with your membership status.

  • Via text: Text (620) 591-5553 and follow the prompts. We'll check your eligibility and text you back with your membership status.
