Chapter Dues are based on the calendar year and are due every January. If you wish to join after June 30th, dues are pro-rated to $12.50. (Affiliate and Student Dues are not pro-rated.)

Please select your desired option from the drop-down box below. Your choices are:

  • Annual Dues ($25)
  • Affiliate Member Dues ($15)  For members of another AAW Chapter who wish to also join FSW. Also available to those who live outside the US.
  • Student Member Dues ($10) For K-12 students.

After making your selection below, fill in your name, and then click the “Pay Now” button. You will be taken to PayPal’s website to enter your credit card information and complete your payment. You should receive an email confirmation from PayPal.

Note:  Affiliate and Student Members enjoy all benefits of Regular Members, except they do not vote in Officer elections.  You must currently belong to another AAW Chapter OR live outside the US to be eligible for the discounted Affiliate Membership rate.

We plan to continue using Zoom or other streaming platforms to make our live meetings available to anyone, anywhere.  Also, if you live outside the US and would like to attend our meetings and demos on a regular basis, we welcome you to join as an Affiliate Member.

First State Woodturners is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to sharing our skills and growing the craft of woodturning.  We participate in many community outreach initiatives, including the Beads of Courage program for children with serious illness, demonstrating at local events, and teaching woodturning to area high school students. Your annual dues and donations help us advance these goals.

Chapter Dues and donations are tax deductible. Save/print your PayPal receipt for tax purposes.
