of
Membrane Societies
WA-MS established in 2017 by AMS, EMS and NAMS

How it works

The founding members of the World Association of Membrane Societies are:

  • the North American Membrane Society - NAMS;
  • the European Membrane Society - EMS;
  • the Aseanian Membrane Society – AMS;

Other national or regional membrane associations can join the World Association of Membrane Societies upon request.

The Association will be led by a Steering Committee composed of duly accredited delegates of the founding member societies. The Steering Committee will meet every year in person or in virtual form during the General Assembly. The president, secretary, and treasurer of the World Association of Membrane Societies are appointed by the society that has the responsibility for hosting the General Assembly. Two Vice-Presidents are appointed by the other two founding societies.

The organization of the International Conference on Membranes and Membrane Processes (ICOM) will continue to be the responsibility of the founding societies EMS, NAMS, and AMS. ICOM is organized every three years, in a carrousel between EMS, NAMS, and AMS.

The World Association of Membrane Societies will not charge membership fees.
