With almost 40,000 members committed to human development, EWB is reaching more people than ever before. These professional engineers, university students, professors, high school teachers, business leaders, and members of the general public form an integral part of our organisation—last year alone they brought the message about the urgent need for development to over 200,000 Canadians. Whether they are facilitating workshops about global water issues in a Canadian high school classroom or working on a rural energy project in Ghana, EWB members everywhere are playing an important role in the promotion of human development.

Professional Members

EWB professional members are a passionate group involved in the organisation in various capacities. Some run workplace campaigns, raising awareness about development among their co-workers; others join their local chapter; many debate and discuss international development issues on; some hold fundraising events in support of our activities; and a small group volunteer overseas.

Members are kept up-to-date with EWB activities and international development news with 'New Developments', our quarterly newsletter, monthly e-news updates and invitations to EWB events in your area. They also have a voice in organisational matters with voting-rights at our Annual General Meeting held in January each year.
