Join IAOA

Thank you for your interest in joining IAOA. In case of any difficulties with the instructions on this page or when following a procedure, please contact the membership officer at membership-officer@iaoa.org .

New Members – Instructions if you join IAOA for the first time

If you have not yet been a member of IAOA, please have a look at the membership types and fees to determine a suitable option of your choice. Then you should be ready to start the registration process with the registration form for new members. (Note that if an email address is already recorded in the membership database, the system cannot create a new record with the same address. Please see the section for current and former members below.)

  1. Register your personal data.
  2. Proceed to the payment page and possibly submit additional required documents or information to the membership officer. Payment options are described on the Types and fees page. This step is mandatory, even for those with null fee.

The registration process will be completed by IAOA approving your membership if all requirements are met, of which you will be informed via email. You are invited to check your spam folder, as messages sent from the system might unfortunately be wrongly considered as spam.

Membership is valid for exactly one year starting at the date at which the membership is approved by IAOA.

Current and Former Members – Instructions to renew membership

First of all, please review the conditionsĀ on the Types and fees page.

Current members

  1. Log in (see menu).
  2. Go to the Utilities in the Member’s area, where you’ll find the tools for the next steps.
  3. Edit your personal data especially if your status (membership type) has changed.
  4. Pay your feeĀ and possibly submit additional required documents or information to the membership officer. Payment options are described on the Types and fees page. This step is mandatory, even for those with null fee.

Former individual members

  1. Determine the email address with which you were registered as an IAOA member previously. (If the next step still fails after a few attempts, please feel free to inquire the membership officer at membership-officer@iaoa.org)
  2. Access the renewal form with that email address.
  3. Check and possibly update your personal information with the Personal Data Editor. In this step you can also change your membership type. NB: you cannot change your email address there, you will find the instruction in the Utilities page in the Member’s area after your membership is validated.
  4. Proceed to the payment page and possibly submit additional required documents or information to the membership officer. Payment options are described on the Types and fees page. This step is mandatory, even for those with null fee.

After IAOA has validated your payment (and potential remaining requirements are met), your (re)new(ed) membership in IAOA will be approved. Please check your spam folder, as messages sent from the system might unfortunately be wrongly considered as spam.

Former institutional members

If you were a member in 2018 or later, please follow the instructions for individual members above. NB: in Step 2, please use the institutional representative’s birthdate.
Otherwise, in order to renew, please register with the registration form for new members, because the new membership database holds distinct records for institutions and their representatives (see the types and fees page for more details). First the institution must join and thereafter its representative must join (for free) via the same registration form.


Membership is valid for exactly one year starting at the date at which the payment is validated by IAOA.
