  3. Within a week or two of receiving your application, the WSK Secretary will send you a Welcome Letter. Please check the spam folder of your e-mail if you don't see this in your inbox. It will include your log in credentials for access to the WSK Forum.

Please note that memberships and renewals cannot be processed unless signed waivers are submitted. This is an ACA requirement. We must have fresh waivers every year for renewals as well as for each new applicant. Thank you for your help on this!

The membership and waiver forms are stored in PDF format and can be downloaded for printing, or they can be printed by clicking on the printer icon on the tool bar just above the display of the form itself. In order to display or print a copy of the forms, you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader. In most cases this will already be installed on your computer. If it is not, it can be downloaded from the web site (look for the "Get Acrobat Reader" icon).
