Corporate Membership $680/yr

A company can join IAH and support our work and enroll up to six employees as personal members. 

Since 2002 IAH has operated its corporate membership scheme to encourage companies to enroll their staff as personal members of IAH through a single annual company payment. 

For the basic fee a company can become a corporate member of the Association and nominate three of its employees to have personal membership. Members joining this way have the same individual membership and voting rights of any member of the Association. 

The company will enjoy the following benefits:

  • 50% discount on advertising space in News and Information
  • Promotion opportunities at IAH Congresses and other exposure as a corporate sponsor in IAH publicity.
  • Additional Corporate Staff Members: $100/yr
  • For an additional fee per person the company can nominate up to a further three employees to also have personal membership a total of six in all. Therefore a company who is a corporate member of IAH can provide the benefits of IAH membership to six members of its professional staff.


Corporate Sponsorship $2,700/yr

IAH-CNC, through the IAH, invites companies working in the field of groundwater and geoscience who wish to demonstrate their support for the goals of IAH, to become corporate sponsors and help provide IAH additional income beyond the contributions of its professional members to support its work. Corporate sponsorship includes basic corporate membership. Details of the Corporate Sponsorship category are found here: http://www.iah.org/join_corp_sponsors.asp


Life Membership $2,500

Life membership is available for individuals for a single lump sum payment of 20 times the full member fee.

Retired Members $60/yr 

Members who retire from groundwater related employment tend to review their society memberships in the light of their reduced financial circumstances and often resign from IAH. They do this with regret because they would like to maintain in contact with the "IAH family". Therefore, we have introduced this new category at a reduced rate. Members will receive the IAH-CNC Bulletin, Groundwater eNews and would be a voting member of the association but will not receive the journal either by mail or have on-line access to the full papers.


Retired Membership 

A retired member continues, at a reduced rate, to support IAH after they have retired from the profession, maintain contact with the “IAH family”, receiving IAH news and reports etc. Retired members do not receive the Journal by mail or have on-line access to the full papers. Go to the registration page and select "Retired member" from the Registrant Type drop down.
