The Grand Circle membership is by application and/or invitation only. A Grand Circle membership is usually granted upon recommendation of an existing Grand or Excellence Circle member, or by direct application, and is submitted for approval by the Board Members.
As a Grand Circle member, you move beyond the transactional to the transformational with an open and visionary state of mind allowing you to see connections from different angles, enabling you to warmly build ecosystems of networks and bring these together, providing these transformational benefits to both you and your growing network.
Grand Circle members are invited to explore ways in which you can shape the WYEN, enriching your environment through your activities and experiencing the mutual exchange of not only receiving, but also giving back, leading to eventual Excellence nominations or an invitation to the Board.
Aside from the benefits of the Welcome Circle, as a Grand Circle member you will be invited to VIP tailor-made visits to the WIS, to VIP WYEN retreats and a yearly retreat taking place biennially, one year in Israel, the next in Switzerland.
A nomination to the Excellence Circle is based on outstanding personal achievement and contribution to the WYEN and/or the Weizmann Institute of Science and is usually reserved for members of the WYEN Board.
In addition to the benefits of Grand Circle members, the members of our Excellence Circle receive a gold WYEN pin, an invitation to the Weizmann Institute’s annual Global Gatherings, and a personal invitation to the annual President’s Dinner.
