National Member Benefits and Support of ISWA

An ISWA National Member is representing one or more countries and acts for the Networks of interest concerned with ISWA matters.

 

Concerning the application procedure for potential National Members please note Section 1.2.4 of ISWA’s Internal Regulations. This section provides, inter alia, information on how the written National Membership Application has to be submitted to the ISWA General Secretariat (to Mr Daniel Purchase, dpurchase(at)iswa.org).

 

National Members dues are based on the Gross National Income (GNI) as published by the World Bank using the Atlas Method. Each year the General Assembly decides the National Member dues for the following year according to the income groups classification table.

 

Low Income countries, whose National Committee applies to join ISWA as new member, will pay flat National Member dues of  € 300 annually and have one vote in the General Assembly (GA).

 

Lower Middle Income countries, whose National Committee applies to join ISWA as new member, will pay flat National Member dues of € 1,000 annually and have one vote in the GA.
