Any member of at least 5 years continuous membership who has permanently retired from full-time salaried employment. Please contact the Secretariat to apply for this grade of membership.
Council has, for some time, been aware of a large constituency of personnel on the periphery of the water treatment sector who are not eligible for WMSoc membership under the current rules. By expanding the existing Student membership, it is hoped to rectify this and to make available the many benefits of WMSoc membership to this group, which come largely from the facilities management and maintenance sectors. This category grants no voting rights and does not allow those who are accepted at this level to use letters after their name; the company receives the advantage of access for its people to the benefits of the training courses and regular informative contact from the WMSoc.
