Membership

By becoming a member, you join the local and global network of water stewards dedicated to a water secure world that enables people, cultures, business and the environment to prosper, now and in the future.

Our members include corporations, businesses, peak bodies, not-for-profits, public sector agencies, academic institutions, and individuals.

Members are encouraged to become AWS Certified, which confirms that your organisation has met the global benchmark for responsible water stewardship.

Why should we join?

You form the local AWS Asia-Pacific network and the global AWS International network

Members collaborate with other members, sharing a rich diversity of water stewardship experience and knowledge. Membership provides a platform for exchanging learning to tackle water-related challenges. It is this shared insight, born from the multi-stakeholder nature of AWS that gives us a strong, credible voice on water use and stewardship.

  • Priority access to local and global AWS Forums, events and working groups
  • Priority access to local and global networks, resources and tools

You own and shape the water stewardship system

  • Consultations on the strategic development of AWS

  • Governance of AWS Asia-Pacific through member-exclusive eligibility to nominate and vote for representation on the Asia-Pacific Board and Governance Committees
  • Governance of AWS International through member-exclusive eligibility to nominate and vote for representation on the International Board and Technical Committee

You position your brand and organisation as a supporter of responsible water stewardship

Members enjoy access to AWS branding and platforms as a badge of recognition for their contribution and support of water stewardship.

  • Your logo and web link on both AWS Asia-Pacific and AWS International websites
  • Member-exclusive access to AWS member branding
  • Outreach support via AWS events and marketing tools
