Full Memberships - Persons employed directly by a healthcare facility or healthcare provider system in departments or divisions with responsibilities for engineering services, building maintenance, construction & renovation, safety and other disciplines associated with maintaining and improving the environment of care, life safety or emergency management enjoy full privileges and access to all of the benefits and programs offered through Full WHEA membership. Full Membership is not limited to managers, directors and others with administrative or supervisory responsibilities; but is also available to non-supervisory staff members, as well.
Associate Memberships -- Persons who are not directly employed by a healthcare facility or healthcare provider system, but employed by governmental or regulatory agencies, representatives of manufacturers, contractors, vendors, architectural or engineering firms, and persons providing other technical or consultative expertise to the healthcare industry are eligible for Associate Membership. Associate members receive all the benefits and opportunities afforded Full members except for the privilege of holding elected office at the state level.
Membership in WHEA Chapter VI is only granted through membership at the chapter level. Membership cannot be applied for on-line because we encourage active participation in our organization for both Full and Associate members. This ensures that the character of each chapter remains dynamic and continuously nurtures the professional development of each of its members. The map on this page displays the geographic boundaries of WHEA Chapter VI within the state of Wisconsin. Residents of border states are also welcome to become members of WHEA, and we encourage those candidates to seek membership in the chapter most adjacent to where they live or work.
Join Us! -- If you are considering joining WHEA Chapter VI or need more information about our programs and meeting schedules, please contact our Member Services representatives, Donella Sarauer at 608.392.6193, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dues -- Chapter VI membership dues for either Full or Associate members is only $50 per calendar year.
Please Note: MEMBERships in WHEA are personal professional memberships. They are not transferable and are not assignable to other employees, colleagues or associates of a MEMBER's facility or organization. Any monetary discounts or other benefits afforded to WHEA MEMBERS are available only to the individual MEMBER and cannot be extended to other employees, colleagues, or associates of a MEMBER's facility or organization.
