New dues payment option: Bitcoin!

BitPay payment links may be found on our Treasurer Operations wiki page.

We now welcome cash, check, money order, debit/credit card (recurring, online, and in-person swipe/chip/NFC including Apple Pay and Android Pay), DwollaBitcoin, and begrudgingly PayPal, for any and all payments to Interlock Rochester. Of these, cash, check, money order, Dwolla, and Bitcoin are surcharge-free.
