Join IMGA or Renew Membership

The process for joining IMGA or renewing membership is DIFFERENT for CREDIT CARD and BANK TRANSFER payment of dues.  Please follow the appropriate instructions below.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1. Check the fees schedule at right and find your membership fee.  The fees are in EURO.  If you're paying in USD the adopted equivalence is 40 = $55 US.

Step 2.  Click here and fill out the registration form.  After submitting the form you will be linked to the dues payment page to choose a credit card, type of membership, and pay your dues.

Paying by credit card is the fastest way to join or renew.  Passwords to the member area of the website are usually issued within 24 hours of registration. (A human is involved so access is not instantaneous.)

BANK TRANSFER PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1. Check the fees schedule at right and find your membership fee.  The fees are in EURO.  If you're paying in USD the adopted equivalence is 40 = $55 US.

Step 2.  Click here and fill out the registration form.  After submitting the form you will be linked to the bank transfer information page.

Step 3.  Make the bank transfer through your bank.

Note! Passwords to the member area of the website will be delayed with bank transfers.  If you join with a bank transfer and don't receive a member area password within a few days, the webmaster was not told that you paid dues.  E-mail your bank transfer confirmation to the webmaster or contact the treasurer for payment confirmation and send it to the webmaster.

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

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.
