Membership Policy

To Our Valued Woodmere Members:
In consideration of the Museum’s recent closure during COVID-19, all existing memberships are extended to allow for a full 12 months in which to visit the Museum. This includes any renewals of membership and new members who joined between November 20, 2020 and January 8, 2021.
Renewal Examples:
  • A member who renewed their membership in November 2020, but was unable to visit the museum due to the closure, will now have their renewal date extended to January 2022.
  • A member who was due to renew their membership in December 2020, but was unable to do so due to the closure, will have their membership extended through the end of February 2021.
New Member Examples:
  • A new membership purchased in November 2020, will be extended for two additional months, and be due for renewal in January 2022.
  • A new membership purchased in January 2021 will not be eligible for an extension, as they will have more than a full 12 months (January 9, 2021 to January 31, 2022) in which to use their membership.
Membership Cards
To minimize the ecological impact of printing and mailing, new membership cards will not be automatically sent to all members. Members will receive a new card when they renew their membership, which will reflect the extended expiration date. Our membership database is updated with these new dates, and membership expirations can be checked by inquiring at the front desk, or by emailing Emily Myles in the Membership office at
Members who renewed or joined during our closure will be sent new membership cards with the correct expiration dates. Please Note: We have a backlog of membership cards to fulfill and it may take longer than usual for members to receive their new cards. Thank you very much for your patience as we work to clear this backlog quickly.
Members at the Family and Friends ($100) or higher level may request new cards by contacting the Membership department, so that they may use their NARM/ROAM benefit at other museums without the need to explain their membership extension. Fulfillment of requests for updated membership cards may be delayed due to the large volume of requests we are receiving. Please know that we appreciate your patience and support!
