New Individual Member Levels
Details of Individual Membership Levels
Individual Member Levels to be implemented in 2017:
Student Member - $39: This member level
incurred some changes: access to Water Resources IMPACT is online only,
no voting rights and students no longer qualify for JAWRA publication
discounts. This level is for fulltime students only and may be used
for a maximum of three years.
NEW Gateway Member - $89: This membership
level was created with state section members, new professionals and
retired members in mind. Gateway membership is an entry point into AWRA
offering key benefits at a reduced cost. This level includes print/online/archive
of Water Resources IMPACT, access to the Members Only Forum on Conversations.awra.org
and discounts on webinars, conference recordings, reports and select
Wiley publications. Gateway members can also choose to upgrade to Professional
at any time by paying the difference between the two memberships.
Professional Member (formerly Regular) -
$179: This member level was formerly called Regular Member level.
All benefits remain the same, as does the fee. This level is truly the
best value, as it provides all possible membership benefits offered
NEW Premier Member - $849: Are you kidding
me? (That's what you're thinking, right?) This member level includes
all of the benefits of the Professional level plus one conference registration
and a few extra conference perks. If you know that you will be attending
at least one AWRA conference and would like to pay for everything in
one fell swoop, then this is the level for you.
Member Levels to be sunset in 2017:
Transitional and International Electronic:
Due to lack of use, the Board chose to sunset the transitional and international
electronic member levels. Members currently in these levels will be
encouraged to consider the Gateway member level.
Online and Retired: These two member
levels were still somewhat popular, but have been experiencing continued
decline over the past several years. Members currently in these levels
will be encouraged to consider either the Gateway or Professional member
