IGS North America Update: Renewing membership

IGS-NA | February 1, 2024 | By: Ben Leshchinsky

One of the most significant impacts you can have on your field is to renew your professional memberships early in the year. This gives organizations the funding they need to continue providing education and networking opportunities, promote the issues that support your work, offer scholarships, etc.

IGS North America (IGS-NA) encourages you to ensure that your benefactor or individual memberships are current. Visit or contact the main office:
