Have you joined a WI and then discovered a second or even third WI that you would also like to become a member of?

Not a problem: the Dual Membership option is available for those full members who wish to take part in the activities of more than one WI. Members may belong to more than one WI, by paying the full membership fee to their primary WI, and the only WI share of the fee to any additional WIs. 

There is no pro-rata rate for dual membership, so the set fee will remain payable at any time during the year. In regard to flexibility, a dual member may have one WI that waives the fee and one that does not, thus a dual member may be paying different fees year on year for the WIs she is a member of. The dual member will only pay the Federation and NFWI shares at their primary WI. At the dual member’s additional WIs, she will pay the applicable WI share of the subscription fee only.

All you have to do is ensure that you have paid the full fees at your primary WI and let any subsequent WIs know that you are joining them as a Dual member.



It has come to our notice that there is some confusion within some WIs regarding Dual members.

Dual members pay the WI portion of the subs and are therefore entitled to take part and vote on all local matters within the WI they have joined as a dual. Dual members can only vote on National and Federation matters at their main WI, where they pay the full subscription.
