Membership in the Marco Island Shell Club is open to shell enthusiasts at all levels of interest and expertise. Members can be appointed by the President to serve on or chair a Club committee or be elected to an officer position. 

Members who would like to create shell art can attend weekly Club shell art workshops. All projects created at the workshops become the property of the club and are sold to raise money for scholarships. Prospective members are welcome to visit a Tuesday morning workshop at 8:45 a.m. for an orientation session and to observe the workshop tables but should not expect to work on projects until the following week when they have joined the club.
