Become a Member or renew your membership Today!

If you have submitted/renewed already your membership, Thank you! you can ignore the rest of the message!

Being a part of The Hellenic Cultural Center has never been so exciting! This year, we are offering several membership level options with lots of great perks!

One of the most asked questions is: Why should I become a member?

The answer is simple! 

The HCC-SW is committed to promoting the legacy and spirit of Greece throughout the area by hosting and fostering events with the ultimate goal of erecting a building that will serve as a headquarters for the numerous events, activities and community outreach which we wish to sponsor. To that end, membership is the life-blood of the HCC-SW. Without your support, none of our events or outreach programs would be possible. With your continued generosity, the HCC-SW will continue to grow and flourish! If you are not already a member or have not renewed your membership, we encourage you to join so that together we can accomplish our goals.

Important News on Membership:

This year we introduced a new concept on membership. Your membership begins the date you signup for the next 365  days!  Then either it can renew automatically, or you cancel it. That way someone can sign up any day of the year and still get the value of a full year out of it. That is a major difference from January to December membership plans that causing someone who enters in July for example to lose 6 months of benefits!
