2017 membership Subscriptions Increase


The new strategy aims to bring the sector together to collaborate on consistent technical practice and to “speak with one voice” on the future of the water sector.

Water New Zealand members have voted at the 2016 AGM for an increase in membership subscription rates to support the development and implementation of our new 5-year goal of a ‘self-determining’ future for the industry.

In order to do this, members at the 2016 AGM accepted the board’s proposed fee increases.

This is a departure from the board policy of recommending increasing subscription rates each year broadly in line with the annual rate of inflation.

As a result, the corporate subscription will increase by $450 in the 2017/18 year, with a further increase of $350 in the 2018/19 year. The number of “free” corporate additional memberships included will increase from one to three under the new billing regime. The corporate additional subscription will increase by $25 in the 2017/18 year, with no additional increase in the 2018/19 year.

There will be no increase to the Individual membership subscription in either of the next two financial years, and thereafter CPI increases will resume.
