TWS Western Section Membership
TWS-WS Covid19 Membership Discounts

We understand that some of our members are being hit hard financially as a result of the pandemic. As such, until the end of 2021, the Western Section and generous donors are offering free or discounted TWS-WS membership to those who are facing financial hardship due to Covid-19. We ask that members pay their dues on the honor system at the rate they feel comfortable paying — either no cost, 50% discount or full cost.

Please note, we are counting more than ever on full-cost renewals from those who have been fortunate enough to not be financially affected by Covid19 in order to maintain the financial health of the Western Section. Also, for those who are feeling secure enough to do so, consider making the jump to life member right now to support the Section during this difficult time. Donations to support affected members are also appreciated.
