Annual dues are currently $600.00 per year covering dues from November 1 to October 31 the following year. From July 1, the dues are $300 for the remainder of the membership year.
In addition, DOCA members are encouraged to take at least one trip each year. DOCA members are responsible for all their costs for any DOCA trip they take. Obviously, trip expenses vary depending upon trip location, cost of accommodations, airfare and other factors. Trip expenses include a DOCA fee for the overall cost of the trip, airfare, hotels, miscellaneous expenses, and meals not covered by the DOCA trip fee.
A typical domestic trip can cost from about $1,000 to $1,500 and take three to four days. A typical international trip can cost about $5,000 to $10,000 and take from ten days to two weeks.
