MISA Zimbabwe has grown since 1997 and now has more than 200 paid up members comprising of media practitioners and media houses. Through a constitutional amendment made in 2001, MISA Zimbabwe is now accepting associate membership from persons with an interest in media freedom and freedom of expression. MISA Zimbabwe has also since decentralized some of its activities to advocacy committees that are recognized in its Constitution through a constitutional amendment enacted in 2008.
Being a membership organisation since its inception, MISA-Zimbabwe has grown its membership in not only numbers but has since diversified its membership from mainstream media practitioners and houses to include persons with an interest in media freedom and freedom of expression. To date, MISA-Zimbabwe has a total of 227 paid up members, as of its Annual General meeting of 2015. Of these members, 65 are female and 162 are male, a reflection of the general male dominance in Zimbabwe’s media environment.
Membership fees and categories
Membership is US$10.00 for individuals, US$20.00 for institutions and US$ 5.00 for student member per year. Benefits of membership include training and exchange opportunities as well as annual access to the MISA resource centre.
