Below are some of the perks and benefits of becoming an OSC member:
- A membership card. Yes! You can become a card carrying Druid! Membership cards will be printed annually after November 1 each year. Your membership card will include your name, craft name, membership level, and degree level within OSC. Note: Initial membership cards for new members will be printed biannually both in the summer and with the annual batch depending on when you signed up for membership.
- Addition to our official member roster and email list. Be sure to join our Facebook Group too! We don't plan to inundate your e-mail box with a whole lot, but we might send occasional reminders and updates.
- Affiliation with the Order of the Stone Circle.
- Authority to start a chapter / grove of OSC, if you like. There are additional guidelines and dues for chapters.
- Access to a self-initiation rite into OSC.
- Access to the OSC Druidology 101 Course. This is currently a text course, but we hope to adapt it to other formats in the future.
- Access to OSC degrees through a customizable self-study program. The programs includes a self-study checklist so you can track your progress.
- Ability to increase levels and standing in OSC through long-term membership.
- Access to the private "member area" of the OSC website. This area contains our member manual, study materials, rituals, and other resources.
