NEW: Announcing the Implementation of the NWI Membership Committee


Be the change you want to see in the world (and NWI)!

YOU are needed! As a passionate, dedicated and unique NWI member, the National Wellness Institute needs YOU to provide your input, expertise, and perspective as part of NWI’s new Membership Committee, tasked with making NWI membership the most useful and valuable resource any wellness practitioner could hope for. 

Why join the NWI Membership Committee?

Members are at the heart of everything NWI does, determining the vision, direction, and ultimately the success of the organization.  Being a member of NWI represents more than a membership card. It represents taking your rightful place as a stakeholder in a community of thought-leaders and experts who collectively stand up for the cause of wellness – for their own communities, and for people world-wide.


NWI exists to ensure that wellness professionals have the training, tools, resources, support, connection, and inspiration they need to do their job to the best of their ability. By serving the wellness professional who serves the well-being of their participants, patients, and/or members, the world is a much happier, more productive, and “weller” place—a giant win-win-win for all!


NWI is, and has always been, about creating, fostering, and sustaining a whole-person model of wellness. The six-dimensional model of wellness was developed by NWI co-founder Dr. Bill Hettler, and is today’s gold-standard of a positive, affirming, life-giving, potential inspiring, multidimensional model of holistic health and well-being.


By joining the NWI Membership Committee, you will have a say in the future of NWI. This new committee, comprised of NWI members, board members, and staff, will determine what benefits are most important for members, how to implement them, and how to refine the NWI membership experience so that every NWI member can be successful in her and his personal and professional wellness goals.

Responsibilities: A Broad Overview

To help NWI further its mission, vision, and operational obligations, the membership committee will serve as a support, guide, and advisor to NWI staff on all aspects of NWI membership from member enrollment and welcoming, to member benefits, to ongoing member engagement and connection. Several key areas have been identified as integral aspects of NWI membership philosophy and operation:


  • Involvement: A network and support for wellness professionals
  • Information: A resource of credible, leading-edge, and practical wellness tools, training, resource, and information
  • Identification: A place of belonging where each person is recognized
  • Inspiration: A place to learn from, be inspired by, and connect with industry thought leaders and peers
  • Integration: A support network of people who help members integrate wellness concepts, principles, and processes into their current professional context

The membership committee will work to create the conditions and resources for optimal member enrollment, engagement, encouragement, benefit, and value.


Primary Committee Member Functions:

  • Participate in a one-time 2-hour orientation on NWI, membership, and member benefits.
  • Attend and participate in at least 80% of the committee meetings. Meetings are held a minimum of 6 times per year to a maximum of 12 times per year for one hour. Ad hoc and subcommittee activities may ensue when appropriate.
  • Evaluate member needs assessments and satisfaction surveys. Make recommendations on how to increase member satisfaction.
  • Identify new member benefits and services that are needed based on member feedback collected, as well as evaluate existing member benefits.
  • Aid the development and implementation of the membership strategy, marketing plan, and goals.
  • Be an advocate and ambassador of NWI and assist with spreading NWI’s wellness message to the world.
  • Facilitate positive member experiences at NWI conference, meetings, trainings, and virtual events when able.
  • Host and lead member and potential member informational and networking events when appropriate.
  • Plan and support the annual member campaign.
