The AOA has had multiple requests for membership applications. As was previously stated, a new on-line application was planned to be added to the web-site in November, but is running a bit late in the development and testing. The new time frame is to be installed in December, probably around the 2nd or 3rd week. The AOA membership is yearly and runs from January1st to December 31st. There are also some new membership categories being added due to the enormous growth of the Ostrich industry and Ostrich meat and products.
