The association welcomes to its membership all current or retired UW–Madison, UW Extension, UW Colleges, UW Health, UW System Administration, UW Foundation, Wisconsin Alumni Association, or Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation employees.

The association also extends membership privileges to a spouse, partner, widow or widower of a current or retired employee.

Interested parties who do not meet the qualifications above may choose to become associate members.  The dues are the same as for regular members.

Membership dues are $20 per year ($40 for two years). New dues categories are Bargain (six years for the price of five or $100) and Life ($300 nonrefundable, with the eligibility requirement that one member of the household must be receiving a Wisconsin Retirement System annuity). You may include your spouse/partner at no additional cost (he/she need not ever have been employed at the UW.)

Those wishing for a "green" version of The Sifter can receive it electronically (in PDF format).

For those who live out of the area (and thus can't attend UWRA events), we now offer an "Out of Area" membership that costs only $10/year or $50 for six years. To qualify, your zip code must be other than 535xx, 537xx, or 539xx. Instead of getting a copy of The Sifter by regular mail, you'll get an electronic version (in PDF format).
