About Us

INW Woodturners Mission and Objectives

Our mission is to provide education and information to those who are interested in woodturning.

Our objectives are to:

Promote interest in woodturning for persons of all levels of competence and experience;

Stimulate creativity;

Create and explore new methods and techniques.

The INW Woodturners club was formed and is operating exclusively for charitable, scientific and educational purposes. We are a IRS 501c3 tax exempt organization and incorporated in the State of Washington as such.
Keeping the aforementioned in mind, club members should maintain civil decorum and refrain from personal commentary that might be offensive to other club members.

INW subscribes to the AAW Code of Conduct and Ethics.  We do not discriminate based on age, race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, (nor on woodturning abilities), and we will not allow such discriminatory practices from our members or guests.

All our events, including regular meetings, conform to the AAW minimum age requirement of 10 years of age. All minors must have a parent or guardian in attendance with them. General meetings are open to all members and guests.   At the present time, all Zoom or other virtual meetings are open to members only.

In April 2017, the AAW Board discussed the existing AAW Privacy Policy and the benefit to clarify the meaning of "AAW business only" to include exchange of member information with chapter officers for authorized activities that mutually benefit members, chapters, and the AAW. For instance, the AAW Vision 2020 strategic plan envisions greater involvement in collaborative recruiting initiatives. The revised AAW Privacy Policy was unanimously approved on May 17, 2017 is as follows:

The American Association of Woodturners (AAW) will use any personal information provided by or about its membership for AAW business only. This includes names, addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses. Any use of this information will be limited to activities directly sponsored by or related to the American Association of Woodturners, including activities by officers of its chartered local chapters when directly related to authorized AAW business. Personal information will never be loaned, sold, or provided to any other party for any other purpose. This revised policy will be integrated into all appropriate documents.

The revised policy allows local chapter officers to use AAW member personal information in support of activities that are specifically authorized by the AAW and its Board. Furthermore, chapter officers will be in violation of the AAW Privacy Policy if they use information obtained in any other manner or by disclosing that information to any third parties.
