What do you get for your membership?
MOA is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint. There are few incentives we can offer that do not create waste, or increase the amount of stuff you have to deal with in your lives. Therefore, for now, our only incentive is the great feeling you’ll have for supporting this worthwhile organization and its work, and our gratitude. AND, reduced rates to our conference and educational programs, as well as the opportunity to become part of an active, dedicated group of people. Come to our Monthly Potlucks, take a volunteer position. Join the MOA Team!
How MOA is making a difference...
In 2022, even with a slow start due to periods of heightened Covid-19 outbreaks, MOA hosted nine community potlucks with programs and with an average attendance of 30 each time. We also provided four day-long workshops that served over 200 people, as well as put on our annual conference that engaged over 120 participants, despite the freezing rain event. This volume of activity is not possible without the support of our members and volunteers.
