The OMAA Board of Directors is pleased to offer Ontario CAOs a two month complimentary membership to "take OMAA for a test drive".

Contact the OMAA Executive Director to make arrangements.

When you do make formal application for OMAA Membership you can anticipate that fees for your first year will be prorated based on the date you apply. If you apply anytime between the OMAA Fall Workshop and the end of the year, we'll waive your membership fees for the remainder of the year. Membership renewals take place annually early in a new year upon receipt of an invoice.
