Mission statement – ‘Our mission is to provide education and information to those who are interested in woodturning. Our objectives include promoting interest in woodturning for persons of all levels of competence and experience; stimulating creativity and exploring new methods and techniques. The INW Woodturners 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 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. Work sessions at Riverview are open to INW members only due to insurance requirements of both INW and Riverview. Another GREAT reason to become a member! Casual observers, however, are welcome to watch on Saturday at Riverview sessions, but may not operate any tools nor help in any way.
Check our home page for specific details of meetings (including whether they are being held).
