OWAA conferences and events include: 

  • An annual, in-person conference (between May-September but historically in the June/July time frame)
  • A series of ‘WOW’ (Women Outdoor Writers) virtual gatherings
  • As needs dictate and as we’re able, there are occasional webinars and virtual conferences as well (although none are currently scheduled)

Non-members that attend OWAA conferences and events and then decide to join OWAA later can have the registration fee for the event attended subtracted from the price of their annual dues.
