Membership

Please Join or Renew your Membership for the Ornamental Turners International

The dues will remain the same $35.00 as they have been in the past several years.

Your membership will include up to three people in your family and that can include grandchildren. The decision as to who you name as family members is up to you. As a chapter organization of the American Association of Woodturners, this change brings OTI membership in line with the membership policies of the AAW. You will be the primary member and have full membership and voting rights as outlined in our bylaws. The principal advantage to the family membership is it will allow members of your family to be involved in all OTI activities; e.g., these family members are welcome to all lectures, presentations and demonstrations as well as full access to the gallery exhibits at the symposiums.

Far beyond the dues from each and every member, we need your active involvement in the organization. We are actively seeking changes in the website and plan for it to become a very dynamic site with constantly changing pages that reflect the interest of the members. The only way this will be possible is for an active involvement from the membership at large. As a group, you have an extremely diverse skillset. Please make those skills available to your fellow turners. We would like the site to be an inducement to visitors to join OTI and become involved as members. We also want the members to feel the site is theirs to use to expand the wonders of OT work.

The organization had some very successful area workshops in the past, so we would like to expand this concept to several workshops around the country in the coming year. This is only possible with a commitment from local members coming together to sponsor and support the workshops.

You have two options to pay your dues. You will have the option to pay by credit card, PayPal, or by sending a check. Credit card is the preferred method as it is very secure and you may use any major credit card. You may be assured that the site is very secure and your card information is very well protected.


NOTE: OTI IS A VOUNTEER RUN ORGANIZATION. MEMBERSHIP PROCESSING IS NOT AUTOMATIC AND WHILE WE PLACE PRIORITY ON ACTIVATING NEW MEMBERSHIP, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL NOT IMMEDIATELY BECOME ACTIVE. USUALLY IT WILL TAKE 24 to 48 HOURS TO PROCESS MEMBERSHIP
