What it Means to Join Us
You are invited to become a member and share in a caring, knowledgeable group of people with ostomies. We offer a safe space to ask any question about living with an ostomy. Members have a range of experience, from those who are “newbies” to those who have lived with an ostomy for decades.
Membership fee: $30 annually. Dues are renewable by December 31 each year. Reminders are issued in advance of the renewal deadline.
We do not wish to exclude anyone because of inability to pay dues. If payment of dues is a hardship, please inform the treasurer or president. They have the authority to waive individual dues and the information is kept in the strictest confidence.
