Which type of membership is right for you?

Individual Membership

An Individual Membership is designed primarily for those who wish to participate in the IIOM Professional Development scheme. There is a joining fee of £48 (inc VAT) for all individual memberships.
The cost of attending members’ meetings is not included in annual subscriptions of individual members. The cost to attend each members’ meeting on a pay as you go basis is £50 (inc VAT), alternatively, members may opt to add £120 (inc VAT) to their annual subscription to cover attendance at all members’ meetings throughout the membership year; this achieves a worthwhile saving if planning to attend more than two meetings
