Members are very important to the DSWAA. The Committee of Management is answerable to the members and it formally reports to them at annual general meetings.
Being a member also means you can:
- be an advocate for dry stone walls and the craft of walling
- increase your awareness of the history and natural beauty of dry stone walls
- understand and appreciate dry stone walling in the context of our indigenous, urban and rural cultures and environments
- nominate to be elected to the DSWAA Committee of Management
Being a member can assist you to raise issues about the dry stone walls in your area and make a contribution towards securing the future of walls and walling in Australia.
We encourage members from all states and territories and from diverse backgrounds that include: farming, heritage, arts, architecture, planning, mining, professional walling and from interested citizens.
