The CWC membership year is from July to June each calendar year; most club events occur from October through May but many of the Activity (interest) groups meet during the summer depending on members’ schedules.

Membership dues are structured by category with discounts/no fee for postdocs and students. Printing and postage costs for the bulletin are one of the club's highest expenses. For members who choose to receive a bulletin by mail, there is an additional $30 fee for printing and mailing of 7 issues of the bulletin.
