WPHA values membership for all interested and would like to provide an opportunity for all those working in public health to be involved with the Association. In order to make strides towards being a more equitable and inclusive organization, for the 2020 membership year we are offering additional access for those who may have financial barriers to participating in the association. It is our hope to engage more public health professionals in WPHA and to support current members who may have financial barriers.

The WPHA board agreed on the need to provide a thoughtful membership option in 2020 to address financial barriers to membership and will continue to evaluate the membership fee structure in future years. As a 501(c)3 organization, WPHA membership dues are a primary source of revenue used to serve our members and fulfil our mission of building a healthier, safer Wisconsin through policy and partnership.

The WPHA membership access code is “on your honor” in support of our organization’s values of acting with integrity, honesty and transparency. If you are experiencing financial barriers that would otherwise prevent your involvement in WPHA please take advantage of the access code: WPHAMEMBER2020 when submitting your payment information to receive a $50 code in addition to your Organizational and/or a First Time Member discount. This code cannot be applied to the student, retired, or organizational membership.
