How to Join NWSEO


There are two types of membership - Full and Associate.

Please read carefully to determine which membership level is right for you!

For New and Returning Members

Dues for a new NWSEO full membership are paid through payroll deduction.

The current dues for payroll deduction are only 1% of your salary to a maximum per pay period amount of $24.89.  The rate increases each year in accordance with the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM’s) salary rate increases for the rest of the U.S.

Employees who wish to join NWSEO through Payroll Deduction may fill out a Standard Form 1187 and provide the necessary information in boxes 1, 4, and 5, then sign and date the form at the bottom.  Social security and timekeeper numbers are not required.  Also, if you would like to give credit to a current NWSEO member who recruited you, please indicate his or her name on the form.

The completed form may be scanned and emailed to or faxed to NWSEO at 202-600-2145.

NWSEO also provides for two types of associate membership: one for retirees of NWSEO represented units, and another for those who may choose to support our organization, but are not in one of our bargaining units, (i.e., those excluded by law).
