I am developing a web project that uses ASP.NET, C#.
We use membership feature for user maintenance.
membership tables seem to store all UTC datetime.
Is there a switch or a property somewhere that will make SQL server to use local server time.

SQL server keeps track of both local and UTC time.  It is up to the data consumer (the application) to interpret UTC as local time.
