We are now using Wild Apricot to host our website, our membership system and payments and emails. The site is fully secure and enables us to provide everything from one location: our email blasts, membership renewals, online store, website, subscribing contacts, event tickets. In the near future, we hope also to provide OSA exhibition entry submission.
Please check your member profile regularly to keep it up to date, including your contact information.
Your membership will automatically lapse when the current year's fees have not been paid by May 31st. If your membership lapses, you will automatically lose the ability to be listed on the website, and promoted on our website and social media. Please do not let your membership lapse!
If your fees are overdue(lapsed), when you log in, you will see a message in the bottom right corner of the webpage and on your profile. You can click this and follow on to pay your fees. Your benefits will be re-instated at the end of the month in which you pay.
*Our Constitution states that the Executive Council may "suspend or cancel the membership of any member whose fees are in arrears for up to one year."
Members who have not paid their dues by the end of the year will be suspended and lose all membership benefits, including the ability to use the OSA designation. Suspended members will need to communicate with a board member or our admin staff. CONTACT US
Best Wishes and enjoy your new website!
