NOTE: Membership dues that were paid in 2020    

    will automatically roll over for 2021    



Our newly-revised Bylaws now allow two categories of members. Membership is voluntary, and all members have the right to attend and participate in general membership meetings and social functions sponsored by the association. Members may also serve on committees, and attend and observe Board of Director meetings.

Active membership in OANA is open to residents of Old Arabi (defined as the area from St. Claude Avenue southward to the Mississippi River, and from Government Street east to Center Street). Annual dues are $20 per household.  Active member dues will entitle up to two adults residing at the same address to vote in elections and on other matters.

Associate membership is open to all individuals, firms, and corporations owning property, or owning or operating a business in Old Arabi, and all individuals and entities who desire to promote the purposes and objectives of the OANA. This class shall be a non-voting member. Annual dues are $20 per household or entity, and entitle two individuals to participate as outlined above.


Dues are owed at the beginning of each calendar year.
