Why Become a Member
Membership supports the perpetuation of old time music in Washington State and accords you certain benefits that you will greatly enjoy. Our summer Workshop is only open to members. Members also get the Evergreen Fiddler newsletter, which is distributed monthly during most of the year. Some districts require membership to participate in district functions. Most of all, you are joining a longstanding community of people who are devoted to enjoying and passing along their love of and knowledge about old time music. Our organization has over 1200 members in all parts of the State of Washington. We are a multi-generational group that draws on both urban and rural music traditions. There are state-wide activities, such as the Workshop; but, a lot of the fun happens on the district level. Members who are youth may be eligible, in some districts, to get scholarships to the summer Workshop. We welcome your interest in joining us!
For memberships in the 2015 year, dues are $25 for the first member (including the newsletter). Additional members in a family are $5 each. Please download a membership application and fill it in to see your total cost. We think you will still find the membership rates attractive, even for large families.
How to Become a Member or Renew Your Membership
TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP: Sign in to the Members Only section of the website. Click on the "Pay Dues" link on the left side of the page (it's beneath the "My Details" link). Select whether to pay by check or online via Paypal. If you want to pay by check, you will print out the pre-filled membership form and send it in with your check. If you want to pay via Paypal (where you can pay by credit card, debit account or from your Paypal account), follow the instructions on the membership renewal page. Please note: please update your contact information when you renew online. Members can update their own information in the Members Only section any time that it changes. This is especially important for Snowbirds - your Evergreen Fiddler Magazine can follow you south and back!
TO BECOME A NEW MEMBER: click below to view and/or download the form. Complete it, print it out, and mail it with a check (NOT cash) for the appropriate amount made out to "WOTFA". Note: the form is NOT interactive. And, it will not allow you to save it (or email it, for that matter); however, it provides the option to fill it out on your computer, rather than by hand. Filling out the form on the computer makes it easier for us to read the information. You are also welcome to just print it out, fill it in by hand and send it in. Current members may also renew this way without logging in to the Members section.
