Membership Eligibility and Classification

Membership is open to women and men with experience in a recognized business or profession. They must be willing to support the objectives of Zonta. Member classification is based on occupations as described in the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO88).

Our Open Invitation

We invite you to attend and participate in our dinner meetings, fund raisers, and special activities. This will allow you to get to know our dynamic members and assess your interest and eligibility in Zonta. The better you get to know us (and we get to know you) the better you can assess if Zonta is a fit for you.

We are an active service organization in Hamilton and are committed to making a difference to women and girls in our community and internationally.
