The Pennsylvania Taxidermist Association is looking for members and organizations that are concerned and interested in this unique and special art form. Members don’t necessarily have to be taxidermists – we welcome everyone from novices to wildlife artists to wildlife organizations.

Members benefit from being a part of this growing organization indefinitely. You will receive a periodic newsletter with convention and competition updates. Attending conventions allow you to rub elbows with some of the best taxidermists not only in the state, but in the country. It also allows you to attend seminars, learn through competition, and meet and talk to suppliers face to face. Members are also encouraged to attend the membership meetings, where you can voice your opinions and concerns, along with finding out new information regarding anything from legislature to convention information.
