Membership in the OAA cost $20 per year. Dues are collected in May through July for a fiscal year that runs from July through June of the following year. For new members joining the club in November through April, $10 is payable and will grant membership for the remainder of the fiscal year.
A family membership is also available; a second, third, etc. family member, residing in the same household as the primary member, can be a full voting member for an extra $50 per year.
Dues in the appropriate amount may be paid in person at the monthly club meeting or via mail. Please make your check out to the Oglethorpe Astronomical Association and send it to P.O. Box 15652, Savannah, GA 31416-2352.
