Join IMGA or Renew Membership

Just two easy steps...

Step 1. Check the fees schedule at right and find your membership fee.  The fees are in EURO.

Step 2.  Click here and fill out the registration form.  After submitting the form use the Paypal link to pay your dues.

Passwords to the member area of the website are usually issued within 10 days of registration. (Humans are involved so access is not instantaneous.)

If you have any questions about joining IMGA or renewing your membership, please e-mail the secretary.

As a member of IMGA you receive:

  • IMGA newsletter published twice a year with papers, articles, book reviews, accounts of conferences and workshops, upcoming meetings, and interesting short pieces of news and information.  See contents of past issues here.
  • E-mail newsletters with information on upcoming activities.
  • Reduced fees to attend conferences organized by IMGA (such as the biannual international Medical Geology conference), certain grants, and the travel fellowship program.  See the website for announcements.
  • GeoHealth Newsletter, issued twice a year, providing information on USGS products and activities related to human health.
  • Extensive international network of IMGA members.
  • Access to the member website with information on meetings, job opportunities, papers and much more.

If you join a local chapter of IMGA, a certain amount of the dues can be used by the chapter for local activities in medical geology.

In the future there are plans for additional benefits, such as scholarships and funding for students attending medical geology meetings.  We are also discussing alternatives for a medical geology journal.
