Whether you want to join a WI, start a new one or support us as an Associate, you can get involved in a way that suits you.
Single WI membership
Standard WI membership is for any woman who wants to join her local WI group and regularly attend meetings. As a WI member, you can attend at least 11 meetings a year, these may be physical or virtual – giving you the chance to meet new people, hear from speakers and take part in different activities. You will have access to training opportunities and the option to get involved in WI campaigns, among many other member benefits.
Try the WI
Try the WI membership runs from 1st October 2020 to 31st March 2021. This is half the usual price as new members usually join in October – December for £10.75. This offer is for three extra months for free. Subscriptions can be renewed in April 2021 at £44 for the year. No subscriptions are automatically renewed.
If you already belong to a WI and discover another WI that you would also like to join, you can do so as a dual member. Dual members can attend meetings and take part in all activities organised by their WIs, although they only have full voting rights in their primary WI.
Are you unable to attend regular meetings at your local WI? Would you still like to become a member of the largest women's organisation in the UK? Then join as a WI Associate member! Find out more and sign up online today.
Start a new WI
If there isn't a WI in your area or you can't find one that really suits you, why not start a new WI? All you need is a group of interested women, three of whom are willing to take on the roles of President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Contact your federation office to find out how to start a WI. They will put you in touch with a WI Adviser, a specially trained volunteer, who will be able to guide you through the process.
