FAVA has four levels of active membership: Associate, Youth, General and Producer. These levels are designed to reflect your productiveness, competence on equipment and level of commitment and service to the co-op.
Upgrading Your Membership:
To upgrade from Associate to General Membership, you must be a member in good standing and have volunteered a minimum of 24 hours in the last year. It must also be demonstrated that you have been involved with the creation of a completed work since becoming a member, either independently or through a FAVA class.
To upgrade your General Membership to a Producer Membership, you must be a member in good standing, have volunteered a minimum of 24 hours in the last year, have made a significant volunteer commitment to FAVA (for instance, through extensive participation on the Board of Directors or a standing Committee), and be accredited on basic FAVA equipment. Producer Members must have completed a body of work through FAVA. They must serve as consultants to other members within a reasonable capacity.
FAVA is firmly committed to ensuring full access to the organization and its resources to all people, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, age or ability.
To remain in good standing at the co-op, members must fulfill the mandatory 12 hours of volunteer service per year, maintain a clean account and strive to serve the co-op to the best of their ability.
