Membership Types & Dues

Who will be joining?

Let's find the membership type that's right for you. 

It's just me!

Individual Membership

This is a personal membership. Your company name and information will be listed, however, the membership is not transferable to other employees within the company. Recommended for those submitting the membership payment from a personal account or for a single proprietor.

It's me and my colleagues! 

Corporate Primary Membership 

Apply for this membership type if you are maintaining the membership for your company. Any additional members from your company then become eligible for the discounted Corporate Additional membership rate.

Corporate Additional Membership

If your company already has a current Corporate Primary ILEA membership, you can add yourself to the company membership at a discounted rate. 

I work for a nonprofit! 

Nonprofit Membership

This membership is available for employees of organizations with an official nonprofit organizational status. Nonprofit applicants must provide proof of nonprofit status in order to receive the discounted dues rate. All member benefits remain the same. 

I recently graduated! 

Emerging Event Professional Membership

Recent graduates from a two or four-year accredited college or university, or those with less than five years of experience, are eligible for this discounted membership type. EEP membership is valid for three years. Applicants for the Emerging Event Professional Membership may be required to verify employment dates and/or graduation dates for eligibility purposes.

I'm a student! 

Student Membership

I'm ready to commit to a long-term membership!
