Yes, you must be a member. However, we make it easy
for you. You can either join before the event or just show up and you
can both join and register for the event when you get there. Just be
sure that you watch the schedule so you know what times the
registration desk is open. We welcome all walk-ins and will get
you set up in no time.
As an Associate Member you do not get a newsletter but can
purchase a commemorative, vote in elections and have all of the other
benefits of being a member.
The membership list is kept confidential and is never sold. No member or other organization has access to the membership database. Anyone who chooses to make their name available as a member of the RWCS can voluntarily do so but the Society does not release names.
Dues are $35.00 a year. As a member in good
standing you will receive a newsletter 6 times a year, can attend RW
sponsored events and purchase a commemorative. But most importantly,
you will have the distinction of belonging to one of the best!
The Bylaws of the RWCS state that the annual convention and business meeting shall be held around the second full weekend in July in Red Wing, Minnesota. The MidWinter GetTogether is always held the second weekend in February. The location is currently DesMoines, Iowa but may eventually move to another location.
