The NEOWTA is a local chapter of the American Association of Woodturners (AAW). The AAW is an international, nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of woodturning. NEOWTA members are encouraged to also join AAW. Like NEOWTA, the AAW is open to anyone who has an interest in woodturning. Members of the AAW include all levels of woodturners, institutions, collectors, and other people interested in our craft. Membership in AAW connects you with a worldwide community of others interested in woodturning and includes a subscription to American Woodturner. For more information, please visit the AAW web site.
