Volunteers must be 18 yrs or older unless accompained by a parent or guardian.
Become a Member!
GAO offers two levels of membership.
- A Voting Member is one who has paid a small annual membership fee ($10 Student Member, $25 Regular Member, $15 Senior Member, or $250 Lifetime Member). A voting member can vote on business matters brought before the membership for approval, can be nominated for a seat on the Board of Directors, and as a Board member can hold office. The member must be at least 18-years old. If a member wishes to serve on the Board of Directors, that member must be a dues paying member for thirty days prior to applying for a seat.
- A Non-voting Member may be an individual, company or group that meets the qualifications for membership, but by their choice will be admitted as a non-voting member. These members may not hold an elected baord position in GAO. There is no age restriction for non-voting members, except that those under the age of eighteen must have parental or guardian consent to join, and must be in the company of an adult when participating in GAO activities. Most GAO members fall into this category.
If you want to join GAO just complete a GAO Membership Application and mail it to PO Box 1684, Georgetown, TX, 78627. And THANK YOU for your interest in GAO!
