NZARM Membership

What are the membership criteria?

There are four classes of membership; ordinary member, corporate member, retired member or honorary member. Candidates for ordinary membership must be involved in, or have an interest in the philosophy, science or practice of resource management. Candidates for corporate membership must be an organisation whether formally constituted or not, that has an interest in resource management.  Applications for ordinary or corporate membership must be approved by the Executive Committee.

The constitution also provides for honorary members, who have given outstanding service to the philosophy, science, or practice of resource management.  NZARM currently has 10 honorary members.

Membership application forms are available on the website. There is an annual fee which is set each at the AGM year, and is payable once the application is accepted. Membership entitles you to participate in NZARM activities and benefit from networking with similar interests and background in resource management.
