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

WA-MS Working Groups


The activities of the Association will be carried out in Working Groups, initiated by the Steering Committee. All members can participate in these working groups. Members of the World Association of Membrane Societies may have one formal representative in each working group, but there is no restriction on participation in the meetings of the working groups.

Working Parties have specific objectives, defined by the Steering Committee. The establishment of a new Working Group should be approved by the founding societies. The Working Groups operate independent of the Steering Committee.


The following Working Groups have been appointed by WA-MS Steering Committee:
