Keep Your Membership Current!
by Jean Nilsson, Ed.
It's time to renew your annual membership and plan to join in our 2014 events. Membership runs from February 1st to January 31st each year. 2013 was a busy year celebrating our group's 40th Anniversary, and we are still in the planning process for events later this year, so keep an eye on the website calendar for upcoming events.
At our Annual Business Meeting in October, members approved a small dues increase that is now in effect. We made the decision in order to absorb the cost of events into the annual dues and avoid charging a small fee at each event. The increase will cover food, occasional costs for speakers and/or venues, and insurance to cover our events, as required by some of the venues.
2014 Annual Membership dues are:
Regular: $70; Supporting: $125 - $200; Student: $35; and Out-of-town (beyond 100 miles): $35
You can renew directly on our website, https://owa-usa.org/payment.php, or simply by sending a check to the address below (include the member's name and "Membership 2014" in the memo line). Make check or money order payable to Organization of Women Architects, and send to:
Organization of Women Architects and Design Professionals, PO Box 10078, Berkeley, CA 94709
