Becoming a Member
Thank you for your consideration in becoming a member of the South Florida Amateur Astronomers Association (SFAAA)! Regardless if you are a newcomer to the hobby or a long time observing veteran, our range of events, programs, member interests, and observing aids can be at your disposal. We encourage all members to be participants in club activities so all of us can benefit!
SFAAA maintains a Yahoo Group where our members can communicate among each other. Members can coordinate "spur-of-the-moment" trips out to many of our local dark sky locations, share news and ask questions, as well as sharing experiences in astronomy. Membership also opens up access to exclusive "Member's Only" content on the club web site.
Members also recieve The Meridian, a full color, interactive monthly newsletter delivered via email.
As a member of SFAAA, supervised access to the observatory will be avaliable during members only nights. After you've been a member in good standing for six months, completing training in observatory operations and recieving the Observatory director's approval, the observatory and tools can be avaliable for independent member use during any non-public events.
Our Saturday Night Public Viewing is always a great time to volunteer and be able to educate visitors while sharing the night sky. (Broward County background check is required to interact with members of the public)
Below you will find our online membership application form. Please fill out the application as completely and accurately as possible. No information gathered on this form will ever be shared outside of the SFAAA. We will process your application as soon as we can, and contact you (most likely via email) when we have completed this.
If you have any questions about this form, the club or the membership please use the "Contact Us" form to ask your questions. We will respond to your questions as soon as we can.
