Membership Renewal Information

There are three types of ODACA Membership for which a current Member may apply or renew: 1) Artist Membership, 2) Patron Membership, or 3) Inactive Artist Membership.

ODACA Membership provides:

  • Members of ODACA have the ability to purchase discounted ODACA Day Luncheon tickets. The annual Luncheon includes an entertaining and educational guest speaker, a Souvenir Doll created by an ODACA Artist and an opportunity to win a Table Centerpiece also created by an ODACA Artist. Registrants of the Luncheon also have the opportunity to purchase Helper Tickets for dolls created by ODACA Artists and receive free admission to the ODACA Sales Room where you will be able to meet ODACA Artists and see their work in person.

  • Members will also have access to Expressions, our quarterly electronic newsletter where Members are kept informed of ODACA news and events and have access to the Members Only Area of the website.
