Those wanting to become members for the 2016-2017 season are invited to join as Associate Members at $25 for an Individual or $40 for a Family Membership. A Family Membership consists of two adults living in the same residence.
Associate Members aren't eligible to attend Feature Lectures but can view videos of the Lectures on the NCWA website about a week after the presentation. They are also eligible to participate in CSA activities, Great Decisions plus receive Newsletters. Attendance at the Annual Dinner is also possible if space is available after Members have been given the chance to sign up.
Associates will automatically be invited to become full Members in the order of their original application date, as openings occur. Currently the waiting time is approximately one year. Invitations normally start around the end of March after Membership renewals end.
Once invited for full membership Associate Members relinquish their Associate Membership, regardless of whether they accept full membership or not.
