Join or Renew

Membership Types:

The society offers two types of membership:

  • Regular membership is for a single individual.

  • Family membership includes all individuals in a single family living in the same household, but with voting rights extended only to a total of two family members aged 18 or over.

We also offer a discount for individuals who are full-time students.  In addition, discounted rates are available for popular astronomy magazines, such as Astronomy and Sky & Telescope, when the subscription is purchased through the NASA Night Sky Network as a WVAS member.


Rates for 2024:

  • Regular (individual) membership: $35/year

  • Family membership: $45/year

  • Full-time student discount: -$5.00

Pay Membership Dues:

New and renewing members members may pay their annual dues by

  • bringing their check to a WVAS meeting,

  • mailing their check to the WVAS Treasurer at the address listed on the Contacts page, or

  • paying online by credit card via PayPal (a PayPal account is not required).

If not paying by credit card, new members need to fill out and include an application form with their dues check.

To pay by credit card, please click on the most applicable payment button below and you'll be transferred to PayPal's website to fill in the applicable information.  Note that nothing will actually be shipped to you even though a shipping address is requested.  Please provide your phone number in the "Instructions to Merchant' box.  Also, if you don't have a PayPal account, you'll be invited to set one up.  If you prefer not to do that, just click on "Not now" at the bottom of the page.  You should receive an e-mailed receipt for your payment.

New Members Only: The name and contact information you provide for your dues payment will be used as your WVAS name and contact information unless you let us know otherwise.  If paying for someone else, please send us a note from the Contact page to provide the new member's name, address, phone, and e-mail.  When sending that note to us, please use the same e-mail address as is used for your payment.  Let us know if you have any questions about this.  Important: Very soon after joining, you should receive an email from us welcoming you to the club.  It provides important information on how to join our members-only email list for meeting and special event announcements, our monthly electronic newsletter, and astronomy-related discussions between members.
