How to Become a Sustaining Associate Member

You are cordially invited to become a Sustaining Associate Member of the American Watercolor Society. The Society is a nonprofit organization and dues are tax-deductible.

We are now accepting memberships for the 2016 Season, which runs October 1, 2015 - September 30, 2016. Annual dues are $50 US per year. (See next paragraph for foreign members)

Benefits of Sustaining Associate Membership include notices of AWS activities, the twice annual Newsletter, Prospectus, Catalog of the Annual International Exhibition (where you will be listed as an Associate Member), a reduced entry fee for exhibition submission and invitations to the Opening Reception and Annual Dinner. Because of the high cost of mailing the catalog outside the United States, foreign applicants should include the following amount in addition to the $50 membership fee to cover postage costs: Canada $10.00, Mexico $14.50, all others $15.00.

Only Signature Members attend the Annual Business Meeting and use the AWS initial after their signature.

Renewing Sustaining Associate Members receive a dues notice prior to the end of each dues year. Please make sure to advise the AWS office of any changes to your contact information.

Sustaining Associate Members whose dues have lapsed may renew by completing and submitting the Sustaining Associate Application Form.
