Becoming an OVAS member is one of the best things you can do to support the club and the hobby. In addition to helping the club pay for it’s various programs, you receive excellent discounts (up to 10%) at selected local aquarium/pet stores on merchandise, which means your membership will pay for itself in a very short time and save you a significant amount of money on livestock and supplies.
You can join OVAS by purchasing a membership online (via PayPal) or at one of the meetings. The exchange of knowledge and meeting like-minded people is what the club is all about.
Once completing your order, your membership card will be mailed to you via Canada Post. Simply show it to supporting vendors when purchasing products to obtain your store discounts.
Memberships are good for the current OVAS season, which starts in September. If you purchase a membership mid-season you will receive a discount.
If you purchase your membership in the months of July and August please keep in mind that the club is not active in those months (although the web site is) and it could take 2 to 3 weeks for you to receive your membership card.
Membership purchased now are valid until the end of September 2013.
