Membership Directors' Committee

The committee meets regularly to discuss the member benefits and opportunities, and how these meet societal aims and providing continued member representation within the governing structure of WES. The committee is comprised of a staff member, a trustee/director and up to seven general members all of whom are dedicated to the WES community and putting the best interests of all members at the heart of society.
