Chapter Membership
Any current member of the Red Wing Collectors Society (RWCS) is invited to contact and join a local Chapter. Each Chapter has its own dues structure in addition to RWCS membership. In order to be a member of an RWCS Chapter, the person must be a member of the RWCS. Visitors are welcomed and encouraged to attend any Chapter meeting to consider joining. Contact the Chapter President from your local Chapter as listed below for meeting times and directions.

 

Benefits of Chapters
RWCS Chapters are a great way to network and get together with other Red Wing Collectors in a local area. The Chapters are organized regionally. Like the RWCS national organization, Chapter benefits include:

  • Option to purchase an annually produced Chapter Commemorative
  • Educational Seminars
  • Newsletters
  • Website
  • Activities: tours, auctions, Chapter events to assist RWCS
  • Buy, Sell, Trade Red Wing pieces within the Chapter
  • Help each other acquire pieces for their collections
  • Have fellow collectors in your area to use as a knowledge base on Red Wing stoneware, dinnerware, and pottery

Chapter Meetings
Each Chapter contact has a mailing address, email, and phone so that anyone can contact them about upcoming Chapter Events. Every Chapter has a different meeting schedule and times they meet. At each Chapter meeting the agenda usually includes:

  • Chapter news
  • Announcements from the RWCS Business office
  • Chapter Commemorative updates
  • Chapter projects
  • Upcoming events

Many meetings are held in the private homes of members giving the host an opportunity to show their collection. In addition, Chapter members have the opportunity to show their latest find during a show and tell time. The meetings often include a meal or pot luck as well.
