Membership of the International Wader Study Group runs on a calendar year basis. Standard rates are £34/€42. We have special family rates (£51/€63) and institution packages (£80/€98). We also offer two reduced rates: two years for the price of one—for members in low-income countries thanks to generous donations from our supporters, and students rates for £26/€32. Please contact the Treasurer David Turner to find out if you are eligible.
The best way to join the IWSG is to pay online by credit or debit card using our secure payment.
To do so you’ll need to have registered for an account on this website (link at the top of this screen). Once you are logged in you, go to My Account where you can select the membership type and years for which you’d like to pay. As soon as your payment is processed you’ll be able to access publications online and book conference places (subject to availability).
If you do not wish to pay online, see the Membership Form (IWSG Membership-Form-2018) for alternative payment methods. Members in the UK wishing to set up recurring standing orders should see the Banker’s Order Form (IWSG Bankers-Order-2018).
