Membership Changes

Because costs for the paper newsletter are skyrocketing, we are moving our member database to a new online service:

What this means for Corvallis Folklore members:

* You must have and use an email address to create or update your membership profile, and to receive notices from Corvallis Folklore

* You will be getting Corvallis Folklore newsletters and updates via email

* You will be able to renew your membership completely online using a credit card to pay

The transition is not going to be as simple as we had hoped, but it isn’t _too_ bad:

* If we have your email, you should have gotten an invitation to “join” Corvallis Folklore Society at Please do go there to update your profile and create a unique password. If you have not gotten this email, or have discarded it, please contact:

  • If we do NOT have your email, you will have to give it to us: Send email to    stating your name, your family members’ names (if any) and your email. We’ll create your account and send you an invitation to “join” as above.

Membership includes:
