OWA 2022-23 Regular Dues

Thanks to covid19, we will not be meeting in person during the first half of the 2022-23 season.  As we learn more about the pandemic in the Autumn, we may resume in-person meetings as early as January, but at the moment we feel that's unlikely.  Whereas we do not have to rent a physical meeting location, the number of regular participants has dropped.  Certain expenses: insurance, a Zoom license, and occasional stipends for presenters, for example, remain.  What's more, the revenue from 50-50 draws and drink sales is absent.  Accordingly dues will be kept at $50 per year.

OWA 2022-23 Regular Dues

The OWA annual membership fee is $50.  It provides participation in club activities from September of one year to August of the next.  Non-members may attend one or two meetings -- ask for a guest pass -- before deciding whether to become members.  Paying dues can be done using PayPal at this web page.  It is important that renewals be done at the beginning of an OWA year, around September, so that the Membership Secretary can distinguish continuing members from those who have left the club.  If you prefer not to use PayPal, contact Jocelyn Plourde as described in the next paragraph.

New Member Joining Late?

If you are a new member joining us late in the OWA season, from January through June, then you are entitled to a rebated membership depending on how much of the year has passed.  This does not apply to late renewals, only to those joining the OWA for the first time.  Instead of using PayPal here, contact Jocelyn Plourde, Treasurer, for further instruction.  Use email to ottawa.woodworkers.assoc@gmail.com  It will be helpful to add "Attention: Jocelyn Plourde" in the subject line.

Student Member Dues

Full-time students may join the OWA at a reduced annual fee of $25.  Students who join or renew through PayPal should present their student cards to the club secretary at the next meeting they attend. Taking a one- or two-week course at Rosewood Studio does not qualify as full-time studies, but thanks for asking.

Dues Payment via PayPal

Click the down caret at the right end of the upper box to the right to indicate whether you are paying for a regular or student membership.  With the lower box choose whether you are joining for the first time or renewing membership for this year.  Note that membership badges will not be printed during the pandemic restrictions on meetings.
