We invite Indigenous people who work with stories to become a member of the Indigenous Editors Association! Benefits include access to our Jobs Newsletter and the right to vote in Association business, free access to IEA webinars, as well as the ability to take part in future programming (for example, a forthcoming Members’ Directory).
Becoming a member is a three-step process. Please read all of the information on this page before applying. We will try to review your application as soon as possible, but please allow our volunteers up to 2 to 4 weeks to respond. If you require assistance or clarification with any of these steps, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
Step 1: Application
To apply, scroll down to the Application Form and choose whether you’d like to fill out the application form online or download it. At this stage, we ask you for minimal information. If your initial application is approved, you’ll move on to Step 2.
Step 2: Application Review
Once we receive your application, we will review the information you’ve provided. Please allow our our volunteers between two to four weeks to evaluate and respond to your application.
Step 3: Fee Payment
If your application is successful, you will receive an email letting you know that your application has been approved pending payment of the membership fee. The email will contain a link to the fee payment form on our website. The annual fee is $10 (Canadian) plus applicable taxes and fees. If this fee is a barrier, please contact us.
