The Albuquerque Gem and Mineral Club invites to its membership anyone who is interested in minerals, gems, lapidary, geology, or any of the earth sciences, and desires to associate with others with like interests. We accept individuals for membership regardless of gender, age (except for individuals under age 18 - see below), race, color or creed. All memberships are family memberships and can include all members of the household.

Household  membership  includes  up to two adults over the age of 18,  and any minor children who  have  not  reached  the  age  of  18  by  January 1  of  the  calendar  year  for  which  dues  are  being paid, for whom at least one of the adults is a legal guardian, all of which live at the same address. Children age 5 to 17 may become junior members of the AGMC.

Junior members, as stated above, are those individuals who will not have reached the age of 18 before January 1 of the year in which they wish to become members. Each such individual must be sponsored by a parent or legal guardian who pays a household membership and who must accompany the junior member on all activities in which the Junior Member participates (or arrange for another adult member to be responsible for their child while participating in said activity). The parental/guardian approval form must be completed for all activities not part of an entire club function. Junior members will not have to pay dues.
