PROBE Barbershop

PROBE Membership

PROBE membership is one of those rare things in the barbershop world, something easy to do, rewarding and inexpensive.

Easy to do

You can become a member of PROBE by printing out this MEMBERSHIP FORM and send this with your dues ($10 US) to:

Lowell Shank, Secretary
2413 Stonebridge Lane
Bowling Green, KY 42101
(270) 202-0515

PROBE membership is a legitimate chapter expense, so you can have your chapter secretary sign you up by contacting PROBE Secretary Lowell Shank or PROBE President John Elving.

It's as simple as that. No, although PROBE is an all volunteer organization associated with and supported by the BHS, you don't have to be a member of the Society to join. Since Sweet Adelines International and Harmony Incorporated have no direct equivalent of PROBE, we welcome our sisters in harmony (and anyone else interested).


Membership brings you, among other things, our very fine quarterly bulletin, PROBEmoter. PROBEmoter has news and tips for Public Relations Officers and Bulletin Editors. After all, that's our name! In the year you join you will receive all issues of PROBEmoter for the year.


Ten bucks! Some time ago the Society decided to make PROBE self supporting with dues. We've done that, without an increase in dues for years and years. This has to be one of the greatest bargains in the barbershop world!

(NOTE: Although recent discussions/decisions resulted in that long delayed increase beginning in 2002, the above is still true. Ten dollars is quite a bargain in this day and age.)

Need more information?

You can go to the Probe Officers & Support Staff page on this website and contact any of the people listed. If you don't know any of them, a good person to contact for additional information would be President John Elving.
