WWA Membership Renewals

When you become a WWA Member, you will receive your membership renewal reminder by email 30 days before your renewal date. Follow the link in the email to pay online, or print off your invoice and mail your check to Chris Rollins - WWA Bookkeeper, 319 N Lake Rd Apt A, Oconomowoc, WI 53066.

And, if life gets busy and you forget to renew at that time, another reminder will be sent 14 days before your membership will expire. You'll also receive one final renewal reminder on your renewal date, because we never want to see you miss out on all of your member benefits.

If you find that you need a little help with renewing your membership, registering for any of our awesome events, or doing anything else on the WWA website, support is only an email away. We're here to help you make your experience with WWA as easy as possible.
