Conflicts of Interest
Whenever a director or officer has a financial or personal interest in any matter coming before the board of directors, the affected person shall a) fully disclose the nature of the interest and b) withdraw from discussion, lobbying, and voting on the matter. Any transaction or vote involving a potential conflict of interest shall be approved only when a majority of disinterested directors determine that it is in the best interest of the corporation to do so.
The NEOWTA facility is easily accessible for people with physical disabilities. Many of our club members have limited mobility. Our building was renovated to accommodate those members and the members of the general public who want to attend our meetings.
Wood turning offers amazing results using a lathe and sharp gouges of many shapes and sizes to create bowls, pens, ornaments, vases, and wonderful stuff that may not at first appear round. And it can be carved, pierced, burned, painted and finished with oils, varnishes and waxes of various "secret" formulas.
Join us and become addicted to this art and craft. Our members range from beginners to very skilled and are ready to share their wood turning skills with others.
