Individual Regular Washington State Chapter of URISA (WAURISA) Members

  • Individual Membership dues: $25
  • Individual Membership runs from Annual Conference to Annual Conference
  • Registration for the annual Conference includes $25 individual membership dues

  • An individual who pays membership during the calendar year before the conference gets their Conference Registration at a $25 reduced price. Their membership expires before the following year's conference.

  • WAURISA Educational sessions and other non-conference WAURISA events are open to non-WAURISA members. However, valid WAURISA members whose dues are current get admission to each event at a $15 reduction in cost. (For example, if the cost for a non-conference event is $25 per person, the advertised price would be $40 for non-members and $25 for members).
