The World Allergy Organization values your membership. WAO is pleased to announce that we are working to better showcase our Federation members – your Society!

As one of the benefits of your WAO Membership, we want to display your Society’s recent and important work on our newly redesigned WAO Membership Page.

In addition to having a link to your Society’s webpage, we would like to give viewers the opportunity to recognize your unique accomplishments in an interactive page. This is a great chance for you to promote your Society’s mission, meetings and other activities.

Continuing from 2013, we will be implementing an online renewal system. Your Society can pay its dues and complete its Society’s Annual Activities Report in one place.
