Quarterly payments would be due on the last day of the following months - March, June, September, and December. Contact the MEGA Treasurer, Kevin Hermening at: MEGA P.O. Box 6226 Wausau, WI 54402-6226 for further details. Life membership fees are based on age, and are shown at the bottom of the application form.
