Individual Members and Supporting Groups who did not renew within the past 5 years may reinstate their membership, instead of reapplying as a new member or supporter.

To reinstate, members or supporter need only to pay their dues in full for the current year.
If a reinstatement occurs mid-year, dues will be prorated for the second year.

There is currently no reinstatement fee. Reinstatements will be processed on the 5th and 20th of each month and welcome packets will be mailed within 1 week after the reinstatement is processed. Newly reinstated members and supporters will be published in the association update in Outdoors Unlimited® and on the Members-Area of the website.

Members and supporting groups who have not been affiliated with OWAA for more than 5 years will need to reapply by filling out a new application and going through the full application process. If you are unsure when you were last a member or supporter, please contact membership[at]

For more information on the benefits of OWAA, see our Join page.
