Special Arrangements on HKWMA Membership Subscriptions for Session 2021/22


HKWMA’s membership starts on 1st July every year, and it is time of the year to renew your HKWMA membership. As you may be aware that at the 2020/21 Annual General Meeting, a special resolution was approved that the 2020/21 annual subscription would also cover the 2021/22 period, as a measure to relieve the impact of the pandemic to our members. As a result, some special arrangements on membership subscriptions are required for this session.

For Existing Members
As a result of the above resolution, the annual subscription for the 2021/22 period would be waived for existing members subscribed for the 2020/21 session. While these members will not need to pay, we would still kindly request that you take a couple of minutes and provide updated information if there are changes to your particulars (e.g. contact details, working company, address, or any new representatives, etc.) by advising our HKWMA Membership Secretariat (winnie.yeung@veolia.com), so we can ensure you always will be kept updated on HKWMA news and events. Alternatively, you can send us the Application Form with the updated information. The membership certificate 2021/22 will then be prepared according to the updated information provided and sent via email to members.

For New Members
For new members, we are very pleased to confirm that the current membership fees would remain unchanged for the coming session. If you would like to apply for membership, then please complete the Application Form and proceed as instructed on the Form.
