If you are new to the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association we recommend you review the information in this article. It will hopefully help you get the most your membership from the very beginning.
The GWA secretary is responsible for providing membership badges. We encourage wearing your membership badge at every meeting so that new and old members can get to know you more quickly and remember you name. Your badge also is proof of membership that numerous local woodworking material and equipment suppliers honor with a generous discount. Membership badges are also required for shop tours and other restricted access events.
The GWA website has an extensive calendar of events for Saturday and special interest group (Scroll Saw SIG and Woodturners SIG) meetings and other events of interest. Please visit the website regularly for current scheduling information. We also have an automatic mailer that sends a notice every Tuesday via email. As a registered member you still must opt-in to that list. To opt-in, sign in to the GWA site and look for the GWA Events Mailer on the left. If you are signed in it will display a subscribe link. Use that link to opt-in to the weekly email.
All GWA meetings are currently held at Peachtree Woodworking Supply in Norcross, GA. See the Saturday and special interest group calendars for scheduled meeting days and times. Guests are welcome at all meetings.
GWA memberships are handled both in person and via the website. If handled in person, the website is updated manually. Membership is based on the calendar year. Dues are prorated for members joining after
the end of a quarter. You will receive automatic notices from the GWA website when your membership is about to expire.
Online Registration for Existing Members
If you are an existing GWA member and you are not yet registered on the website there is a special 'membership plan' for paid members to register. Upon registration and confirmation of your paid membership status your membership account will be updated to indicate your current membership status and expiration date.
Our members will generally be happy to answer any questions about woodworking or the club. Board members are listed on the website and available to answer more detailed questions about the GWA.
