OPA Membership Categories

The Organization of Professional Aviculturists is an incorporated Not-For-Profit Trade Organization. All Members of the OPA must agree to support the Mission "to protect the rights of all aviculturists to keep and breed birds, as well as the general citizenry's right to own pet birds."

Membership is divided into three main groups. Avicultural Fellows and Avicultural Affiliates pay higher dues than Supporting Members and their qualification for membership in those categories depends on their business credentials.

AVICULTURAL FELLOWS — Bird Breeders involved in the Professional Fellowship Certification Program and in the development of other OPA programs.

AVICULTURAL AFFILIATES — Industry and Professional Members

SUPPORTING MEMBERS — Pet Bird Owners and Others
