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.
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.
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.
Students enrolled in a two- or four-year college degree program in arboriculture or a related field are eligible for a special $30 student membership for the PNW Chapter and $45 for the International Society of Arboriculture. Proof of enrollment and your faculty advisors’ approval must accompany your membership form.
A new student discount program will be available. This program will involve the instructors collecting the dues from students. If an instructor will coordinate the payments, the students will receive a $15 discount.
For student memberships, contact ISA Membership Department at 888/472-TREE (8733) or visit their online webpage.
In addition to the benefits listed in the sidebar, PNW-ISA members receive discounts on ISA Certification exams and re-certification rates. To find out more about ISA Certification, visit the section entitled “Certification”.
