Dues: Annual dues for Central Illinois Woodturners are only $25 per calendar year, to be paid on or before January 1st. Upon initially joining the club, dues will be prorated based on the month a new person joins. Dues can be paid in cash, by check, or through PayPal. If using Paypal, we ask the “friends and family” option be used to avoid unnecessary fees.
AAW: The American Association of Woodturners (AAW) is a worldwide organization that is the leader in providing education, information, and collaboration among the woodturning community. Our club is an affiliate club of the AAW. While we encourage all CIW club members to join the AAW, it is not required.
How to join our club: Jeff Hindman is the current Membership Chair for our club and will be the person who makes sure everything goes smoothly. There are multiple paths to club membership.
Join in person: Simply come to any CIW meeting and speak to Jeff Hindman. He will take care of everything! Because of the current COVID-19 response, we are not physically meeting each month, so this may not be a viable option at this time.
