 About Membership

  • Membership is open to all individuals who have an interest in any aspect of woodworking. Current members represent all woodworking skill levels from Beginner to Professional. 

  • Members are entitled to a monthly newsletter, a membership card which provides discounts at leading suppliers of woodworking related products, notice of our regularly scheduled meetings and presentations, and preferred rates at special club sponsored educational seminars.

  • DMWA Membership benefits are personal and may not be transferred to family members.

  • To become a member, you must complete an Application and pay an initial fee of $25.

  • For current members, the annual calendar year renewal fee is also $25.
     
  • Members with recently lapsed dues may not need to complete a new application, please contact us to see if we still have your information. If your prior member data has significantly changed, please submit a new membership application.
  • Meetings are normally held in person on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM from September through May, but during the Covid-19 pandemic we have been meeting virtually on Zoom. Any changes will be announced in the monthly Newsletter and on our email service. Guests are welcome to attend a meeting to "check us out", but during Covid distancing, we ask that you get in touch by email so we will be able to admit you to the online meeting.

  • You are welcome to Contact Us if you have any question or would just like to discuss Club membership with a current member.
  • Membership provides a discount at many local suppliers that are relevant to woodworkers. Many members justify their membership based on these discounts alone. See the Preferred Suppliers menu item on the Main Menu. You will find information on discounts, how to contact, location and products/services offered.
