Dear Swiss Club TELL Friend,

Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Swiss Club Tell. The Swiss Club Tell was founded in 1920, in Mill Valley, California and has currently about 120 members. We have about 4-6 events a year where we get together for fun and entertainment, and to socialize with other Swiss folks.

The Swiss Club Tell is open for new membership under the following policy:

    which includes $100 initiation fee + $40 annual membership fee.
  • Yearly membership fee thereafter is $40 per adult.
  • There are no group/family memberships, only individual.


  • Age 0-17 are included for FREE with the parents’ membership.
  • Parents are responsible for all event fees, if any.

Young Adults:

  • Children over the age of 18 need to get their own membership. If the young adult has been a member under a parent’s membership, they are exempt from the initiation fee, if the parent’s membership is in good standing.
  • There is a two-year grace period for young adults to become a member. Upon the expiration of the grace period, the full initiation fee will be required.
