When school Boards of Trustees join WWSTA they pay a regional subscription. This subscription enables boards to enjoy representational and service benefits, communications, trustee support networks (cluster groups) and support. Associate membership may be offered (at the discretion of the Management Team) to other educational bodies, and to individuals with a strong interest in trusteeship.

Support is provided through the WWSTA regional office, based in Petone. The Executive officer is able to help with matters of general trustee concern. The office may be able to provide help with suggestions for policies, meeting procedures, trustee elections, co-option of trustees, appointments, and other trustee issues that arise.
