Instructions for Joining IOM or Renewing Membership

IOM membership dues are needed to pay for expenses related to the organization. Most of the funds are used for student travel awards to the biennial congresses held throughout the world. Additional funds are used to support the congresses as necessary. As a member, you will have access to all areas of this web site including abstract books and other information related to the organization.

The process for paying dues is simple. Whether you are joing as a member or you are an existing member in good standing and were able to log into the site, then click the Continue button below to begin the process of renewing your membership. When you complete the process through the PayPal payment, please take the time and review your information and update as necessary. Use the Membership/Profile Update tab above to do so.

Once you click the Continue button below, you will be transferred to an options screen where you will choose the type of membership and the length (number of years). Student memberships must also include a letter from the department certifying student status. This should be sent directly to the Treasurer ([email protected]). Once you have completed that and click the Continue button, you will be taken to another screen confirming your payment option, name, etc. A button at the bottom of that page will take you to PayPal where you can pay your dues by either a credit card or a PayPal account in US dollars only. Once the Treasurer has confirmed receipt of funds, your account will be activated (new members) or your dues date will be updated (renewing members), and you will receive an email receipt.

For a Sustaining Membership, please contact the IOM Treasurer directly. We cannot accept Sustaining Membership online payments.
