The “grace period” to pay dues that expired December 31st of the previous year runs through March 31 of the current year. Therefore, up until March 31st you may pay your dues to continue your membership. After March 31st you can be reinstated by paying a minimum of three years dues, continuing your membership, and keeping your member number. This can be done by mail, in person, by phone or online simply by paying your dues.

Former Members (including those eligible for reinstatement) can also reapply for membership simply by repeating the application process for a New Member (as described above) either with 2 signers on your Membership Application, or just one sponsor but with evidence of a CCW or FFL. This must be done in person with your Guest Pass on and one sponsor physically present.
Rejoin/Reapply without Sponsorship
Former Members who left in good standing but no longer have a friend able to come in person to sponsor them for membership may re-apply without sponsorship by coming as a guest of OGCA, applying in person and paying membership dues for the next three years. This new option is designed to help our many Former Members whose friends are not able to be physically present to sponsor.
To choose this option:
Contact OGCA in advance to verify that our records confirm your status as a Former Member. Email email@example.com, call (330) 467-5733 or write to the OGCA Business Office.
Request a “Former Member 3 Year Dues Application.” Fill it out. Present it at the Business Office desk in person at a meeting along with $165 (check, cash, Visa, MC or Discover). We do not accept mail-in applications.
We will process your Guest Pass which is needed for admission to the meeting hall when you apply.
At the same time, we will process your Membership Application and apply your 3 years Membership dues. You will receive a new membership number and go through the application process.
Fee Break down: if you apply January through May the $165 paid includes your Guest Pass, application fee and 3-years dues for the current year and 2 more years. If you apply June through December the $165 paid includes your Guest Pass, application fee and 3-years dues beginning the next year and 2 more years.
