Types of Membership
IABC membership belongs to the member, even if the employer paid for it. If the employer pays for the membership and the member moves to another employer, the member retains IABC membership for the duration of the year and can renew without paying a reinstatement fee. The former employer (who paid for the membership) can also arrange to have a successor “assume” the remainder of the paid membership (if there are three or more months remaining on the membership). If the member is changing positions within the same organization this policy does not apply.
Corporate packages offer discounts to five or more employees from the same company. To initiate a package, please see our corporate package information page.
A higher value “Platinum” package is also available, offering on-site training, PR opportunities for the company, and special pricing on IABC products and events.
- Platinum Package (for 75+ employees)
- Gold Package (for 31-74 employees)
- Silver Package (for 16-30 employees)
- Bronze Package (for 5-15 employees)
