About the IWRA Membership

As IWRA reaches its 50th Anniversary year, it has been decided to opt for a simpler, more user-friendly membership structure that will be entirely based on our members’ benefits!  This change follows an intensive review with the Executive Board and member groups, and it aligns with IWRA’s ongoing strategy to put our members back at the centre of everything we do.

Individual Membership

Instead of defining membership based on “who our members are” (student, retirees, etc.), we have decided to shift our focus to how our members want to interact with IWRA. As such, we are now offering three individual levels of membership: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level of membership will have different levels of benefits: each higher level adding to the basket of benefits for the level below.

Bronze Membership is a free, unlimited membership for people who just want to keep an eye on IWRA’s activities and obtain minimal benefits at no financial cost.

Bronze Members can:

  • Receive newsletters and updates through our IWRA mailing list
  • Join Task Forces and Chapters as a participant
  • Access some “members only” content through the Membership platform

  • Access exclusive content for paying members only (in the first year following IWRA events)
  • Receive invitations to attend in-person board meetings or workshops, “Gold Events,” or the President’s reception at Congress
  • Get invited to attend all in-person Board meetings/workshops

Silver Membership is aimed at anyone who wants to network, get involved in our activities and have a full IWRA experience.

Members awarded with Honorary Membership status will become life-long Gold Members, and Fellow members will benefit from Gold Members’ benefits for the price of Silver Membership.

Are you thinking of nominating someone as a Fellow or Honorary member? For more information on how, visit this page.

Organisation Membership

The membership for organisations will become either a Silver or Gold Partnership. The term “Partnership” is chosen on purpose: we want to engage more with our Organisation members and give them the opportunity to actively participate in IWRA activities!

A silver partnership offers an affordable level of membership to small and non-profit organisations that want to actively engage with IWRA members on activities and at events, as well as to promote their activities across the IWRA network.

Silver Partner Organisations can:

  • Include 2 Gold or 5 Silver Individual sub-members with all the relevant benefits

  • Receive a preferential rate on a World Water Congress Stand or a space on IWRA stand
  • Become the recognised sponsor of 6 Silver annual memberships for people on low incomes

Gold partnerships offer memberships to larger organisations that want to have more representatives actively engage with IWRA members on activities and at events (especially at the Congress), as well as promote their activities across the IWRA network.
