Please note that the trustees have agreed to the addition of a new membership category, that being Retired Persons.

This category is defined as anyone who is 65 years and older. They will qualify for membership at the reduced rate of R50.00. Proof of age will be required when joining the society by submitting a copy of their ID.

This membership also comes with the associated membership of the Society of Wetland Scientists (SWS).
