Looking to sign up multiple people for IARSA membership? IARSA can expedite the process. Joining IARSA has never been easier!

For more than 5 years, IARSA has provided researchers and scholars with the tools to exceed expectations. We are ready to help your team grow opportunities and better meet the challenges of today’s ever-evolving research community.

Even though a group membership is in place, all are considered Individual Memberships and owned by each individual. If an individual leaves the organization prior to the membership expiring, the individual member will retain that membership provided they continue to meet membership eligibility criteria for the remainder of the term. These same individuals will be responsible for any renewal applications and subscriptions.

IARSA Group Membership (IGM) will:

  • Provide immediate training on the latest tactics and strategies in-person events as well as online.
  • Help build business through connections to an engaged network of more than 3,000 colleagues.
  • Keep your team up to date with the latest research news and industry headlines that are making an impact.
  • Offer inspiration and insights on what works (and what doesn’t) through case studies and research.

CRITERIA

If you’re considering enrolling your team in the Group Membership Programme (GMP), we have set some criteria to ensure that this programme provides the greatest return on investment. We require that a minimum of three employees join at the same time. Also:

LOGISTICS

Primary Contact: The primary contact will be IARSA’s sole contact for the Group Membership. If individuals contact IARSA to be added onto the group membership throughout the year, the primary contact must approve.

TERMS

Group memberships will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year. If members of the group are converting from an individual membership to a group discount, they may lose part of their annual individual membership due to the timing of the transition as no prorated credit will be given. The only exception to refunding a prorated amount will be for members who joined individually within the previous 30 days. For example, if your membership is due to expire in March and your organization signs up for the group discount programme in January, you will lose the portion of your previous membership that would have covered you from January through March.
