How to Join

Membership is easily accessible at an annual fee of $50. You can become a member by attending our annual conference in Bloomington, Minnesota, usually held during the first week of November. Alternatively, individuals can sign up or renew AIRUM membership without attending the conference. This nominal fee ensures ongoing access to the members-only sections of our website, prior year conference materials, and timely notifications of AIRUM events.
