You don’t need to be a full member to play a role in EWB-OSU, but membership opens many doors within the chapter, including the ability to travel to project sites, the ability to vote in chapter elections and referendums, and the ability to be elected as a chapter officer. In addition, as a member, you will receive the satisfaction of being an official part of an organization that is working to improve the lives of other people. Any OSU student may become a member by paying annual dues of $15. This can be done at any of our meetings or by contacting one of our officers. In addition, EWB-USA requires all members to provide basic information for their records. This also grants you access to many resources. The form is available at EWB-USA’s signup page.
