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 ‚Äì 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.
