Member Benefits & Options

Membership Benefits

Membership in the George Wright Society is open to anyone who shares our goals. We welcome members from anywhere in the world. Benefits include:
    •    Our journal, The George Wright Forum.
    •    Discounts on registration fees for the GWS biennial conferences. Institutional Members can designate up to 3 people to attend the GWS conferences at the discount rate.
    •    Unlimited access to the GWS office for inquiries and requests for assistance. If we don’t know the answer, we can usually point you in the right direction.

The main benefit of membership in the GWS is being part of a like-minded community of professionals who care passionately about the scientific and heritage values of parks, protected areas, and cultural sites.
