August 14 1999


 With some reluctance, the WAOE Board of Directors secured the approval of the recent Annual General Meeting to introduce an annual membership fee from July 1 1999.  Receipts from new and renewing memberships - supplemented by donations, sponsorships and grants wherever possible - are an essential source of the small but regular and stable income we need in order to be able to sustain our database management and other Web-based operations, and to extend our communications systems, regional chapters, committee and OCREW networking and special project activities in the interests of improving the quality and professionalism of online education.

Full information on the payment of fees is available as part of the Orientation Course at  The following is a summary of the main points:

1 unit  = $10 = one year WAOE membership
2 units = $20 = two year WAOE membership
3 units = $30 = three year WAOE membership
Any amount over $30 will be taken to be a 3 year WAOE membership plus a donation to WAOE.
