Becoming a member of the PWS Association (NZ)

If you have an immediate family member with PWS, Family Membership is free and entitles you to receive copies of our magazine, PWS Downunder, keeping you up to date with developments in the PW world. You will be advised when visiting specialists come to NZ, where the next conference or workshop is, when family meetings are taking place and have access to our resources and chat rooms, where parents can express their concerns, ideas, successes. Membership also entitles you to a (one per family) vote at our Annual General Meeting.

If you are working with a person with PWS, or have an interest in the syndrome, an Associate Membership will keep you updated with developments in your field of interest and advise you of meetings, conferences and workshops. You will also receive our magazine, but will not be entitled to a vote at our Annual General Meeting, although you are most welcome to attend.

Of course, you do not need to be a member to receive support - just get in touch.

Membership is one way you can support our Association. With your Associate Membership donation, we can continue to improve and extend our services, making life easier for friends and family living with this challenging condition. With limited funding, we strive to provide family support, information, advocacy, training workshops, family meetings, newsletters, update resources and maintain this website. For a modest annual donation, you can make a difference and help us to achieve so much more.

Associate Membership costs $30 NZD per annum.
