Membership Categories

Membership in the Pacific Northwest Chapter is open to individuals involved in the field of arboriculture and urban forestry and/or simply interested in the benefits and proper care of trees. The Pacific Northwest Chapter offers three types of membership levels – regular, life, and student.

Regular Membership

Membership is available to individuals at $60 per year and allows full voting privileges and the opportunity to run for the PNW-ISA Board of Directors. This regular rate is decreased to $50 if membership is made in conjunction with ISA membership (total fee of $180 for 2013). Go to the ISA website to purchase a regular membership.

Life Membership

Individuals may purchase a lifetime membership in the PNW-ISA in lieu of paying annual dues. The current life membership rate is $600. Whether you are new to the field or have been around for years, this membership is an economical option.

Student Membership

ISA is committed to offering students opportunities to get involved with professional arboriculture through ISA, local chapters and our professional affiliates. As such, student membership at ISA is free when you join your local chapter (which you can do in ISA's webstore or on the application below). If you live in a region without a chapter, ISA Student membership is $30. All four professional affiliates associated with ISA (SCA, SMA, UAA, AREA) currently offer free membership to students as well.

This membership category is limited to students pursuing the study of arboriculture or any allied fields; must be approved by a faculty advisor. A copy of your current student ID and class schedule is required in order to process a student membership.

Chapters will continue to have the option of providing a chapter-only membership for students that do not wish to join ISA. The structure and pricing of Chapter memberships shall be at the discretion of the individual Chapters.
