WISA subscribes to a multi-disciplinary approach for its sector. Members are from various backgrounds and disciplines. The various categories of membership cater for the needs of all professionals involved in the water sector.
The Institute offers both individual and non-individual membership.
Patron membership is the most prestigious form of membership offered by WISA and is renewable annually at the discretion of the Institute. Because of the eminence of its position in the water sector, WISA is extremely circumspect in the selection of Patron Members which it has limited in number so as not to dilute the status and prominence of being a Patron Member of WISA. Typically organisations are only accepted to become Patron Members upon application, should there exist an opportunity for them to contribute towards the mission or the activities of WISA. The most significant benefit will be the public awareness of your association with the only Water Sector representative body in Southern Africa.
