The Process of Joining  using myRWA explained

The above links will take you to myRWA asking you to login.  You must have a myRWA account to join KOD.

Whether a new or current member paying dues through myRWA, you will be asked to complete/update a membership form when you pay your dues. Use the TAB or Enter keys to move between fields. If you hit the Enter key, it will save an incomplete version of the form. Although it’s possible to edit the form on your checkout page, it’s easier if you stay away from the Enter key.

Once you have selected everything you wish, go to your cart and check out.
