Membership Categories & Pricing

Become a member and join thousands of your colleagues and a community of members who all share a common interest: public sector human resources.

IPMA-HR offers an agency-level membership and four individual membership categories, which are all outlined below, along with information on yearly dues renewal prices for each.

Agency Membership

All agencies conducting public HR functions, both in the U.S. and internationally, are eligible for membership in this category. Independent consulting groups, for-profit and private sector companies can also seek membership under this category. Dues are based on the number of staff in your HR department.

Standard Agency Membership

  • U.S. Agencies – Federal, state, or local level, special district, or school district in the United States. Dues depend on the number of covered staff.
  • Associates – Independent consulting groups or other for-profit, private sector companies. Dues depend on the number of covered staff.

 

Individual

Individuals currently working in the HR field, unemployed but looking for HR work or retired from the industry, are eligible to seek membership in this category.

Standard Individual Membership

  • Individuals – Individuals employed in public sector HR by an agency or currently unemployed and looking for work in the field.
  • Consultants – Individuals employed by independent consulting groups or other for-profit or private sector companies.
