Q: What are the benefits of membership?

A: Not at all. Our members range from master modelers to amateurs. No matter what level you're at, you'll feel at home here.
Q: Do I need to live in "North Atlanta" to be a member?
A: No. Most of our members live North of the city, but we have several members who live further down south. As long as you're willing to make the drive to the meetings, we really don't care where you live.
