Membership – General

How can I become a member?

Upon registering you will receive your IGA ID in a separate email, which you can use to access the IGA membership area.

What does each membership category mean?

There are currently five membership categories:

Individual membership – people interested in supporting geothermal energy and the objectives of the IGA.

Corporate club membership – commercial or profit-making organizations interested in supporting geothermal energy and the objectives of the IGA. Each corporate member is entitled to three voting representatives.

Institutional membership – non-profit organizations interested in supporting geothermal energy and the objectives of the IGA. Each institutional member is entitled to three voting representatives.

Student membership – students interested in supporting geothermal energy and the objectives of the IGA and regularly enrolled in a college or university. Student members have all the rights, the privileges and the duties of membership but do not have the right to vote or hold office.

Affiliated membership – individual members belonging to the IGA through a group scheme by virtue of their membership in an affiliated organization. They have the same voting rights as individual members but their obligations and benefits may differ from those of individual members according to the terms of the group scheme agreed between the affiliated organization and the IGA Board of Directors.

Which membership category should I choose?

Membership – Affiliated Members and Organizations

Who can become an affiliated member?

An affiliated membership is an individual member belonging to the IGA through a group scheme by virtue of their membership in an affiliated organization. They have the same voting rights as individual members but their obligations and benefits may differ from those of individual members according to the terms of the group scheme agreed between the affiliated organization and the IGA Board of Directors.

What does affiliated organization mean?

An affiliated organization is a national geothermal organization involved in geothermal research and activities that supports and promotes geothermal energy on a country level. Please, find the list of all IGA affiliated organizations here.

If I am a NZGA member does it mean I am also an IGA member?

The answer is yes. You are automatically an IGA affiliated member if you are a member of any IGA affiliated organizations listed here.

What should I choose – individual or affiliated membership?

We encourage you to become an affiliated member, in case an IGA affiliated organization operates in your country. This way you can not only enjoy the benefits of the IGA, but also the benefits of your national association.

If you choose to become an affiliated member, please bear in mind that all communication with you will be done via a liaison officer of your affiliated organization. Read the section below for more information.

If I am an affiliated member how can I communicate with the IGA?

All initial communication between an affiliated member and the IGA is done through the appointed liaison officer of an affiliated organization. These are communication and media officers, general secretaries and administrators. We advise you to check the website of your affiliated organization to find out the main contact person.

You can also choose to communicate with us directly. Please log in to the membership area and update your profile.

What should I do if I cannot reach my liaison officer?

Please, contact us at iga@lovegeothermal.org so we can assist you further.
