Join the Irrigation Association

IA membership is based on a calendar year (Jan. 1 – Dec. 31). To enjoy benefits for the entire calendar year, returning members should renew their membership by Dec. 31 of the preceding year (i.e., renew by Dec. 31, 2017, to enjoy 2018 membership benefits). New members who join after Jan. 31 pay full dues the first year and are granted prorated dues in their second consecutive year of membership. A new member is defined as a first-time member or a former member who has not renewed their membership within the past five years.
