Annual Membership Dues
Annual dues are $20 for an individual and $30 for a family. A "family" is one or two adults and their dependents. Membership is good until December 31st. You must renew every year, and can only participate in club activities if you are a member in good standing. We do not prorate memberships. You are also eligible for a discounted membership to NAMA.
There are two ways to become a member, online or by printing a membership form and mailing it in.
You can fill out our Online Membership Form and pay your membership fees via PayPal. If you choose to fill out the form online, please remember to fill in each required field. At the end of the form you will be required to type your full name to prove that you have read and accept the waiver. At the end of the application you will be directed on how to pay your membership fees.
If you choose to mail your application in, click on the button below to access a printable membership form. Then just print it out, fill it out (both sides), and mail it in with a check for your annual dues to the address on the form.
Your membership is not active until we have received your application, a signed waiver, and your payment.
If you are mailing a check please make it out to:
Mail to: Membership Director, Beth Lampert, PO Box 5513 Salem, OR 97304
WVMS Terms And Conditions
You must be a member in good standing to access the Member's Only area of the site, participate in forays, and access club resources.
To become a member you must fill out an application, sign a waiver, and send it in with payment. We have two membership options, Family ($30) and Single ($20). The memberships are good for one year beginning on January 1st and expire on December 31st and you must renew to have an uninterrupted membership. Please allow 2-3 weeks for us to process your membership.
Once you become a member you will have access to the Member's Only area on our website. Here you can sign up for Forays, participate in a forum, have access to a membership directory, and earn badges. The Board reserves the right to moderate the forums and discussions. Please keep your comments on topic. To participate in a foray you will need to take the Foray Safety Class. This is mandatory for EVERY member beginning in 2020. Once you have been certified in our class, you may sign up for a foray through the Member's portal.
Only our members have access to the Member's Directory. We do not sell your information or collect it for any other reason than to access our own membership. If you do not want your information accessible to the WVMS Membership, you can make your profile "private". We encourage you to fill out your member profile with a photo and email and phone number, so other members can contact you. This is especially important when we do events and need to access our membership for volunteer opportunities.
