Membership cards will be issued to dues-paid members and are required to: borrow library items, borrow equipment, attend free special workshops, attend free field trips, display in the WWPS tent at the AFA Festival, use our matting/framing room and supplies, etc. Dues are due in January of each year- Individual-$10, family-$15, plus we ask that you volunteer 10 hours each year to help with our club's support of Arts for All events. Your volunteering earns funding for our club, and that's how we are able to keep dues so low!

----------- OTHER INFORMATION -----------

Volunteering is the price we all pay to enjoy the benefits of WWPS, so please pitch in and help

We need YOU to help: Make presentations to clubs, civic groups, schools, churches, etc. You can use our pre-prepared PowerPoint presentation "Tips for Taking Great Photos". It's really simple to do. These public outreach programs are one of the most important things we do.

If you made a presentation, displayed your photographs anywhere, taught a class to one or more people, or anything similar, let us know. These activities help with our annual funding.
