Application for IAF Membership
CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS ONLY
(not individual subscribers)
At the 45th Council of Delegates Meeting the IAF voted for a Constitutional Amendment to change voting rights of Member and Associate Member Organizations to allow for Multiple Votes for Member Organizations. The changes include: a vote for every paying member and associate member organization, the retention of a single National Vote by an appointed National Delegate and additional votes "Club Votes" accorded to Member (and Associate Member) organizations with 50 or more members. Each Member Organization may hold up to 4 votes in addition to their country's single National vote. Membership must be proven, based on fees. In the case of disputes a list of members with email addresses will be requested. There are specific issues where only National votes (National Delegates) will count, such as determining a quorum. For further information on these changes contact the IAF secretary firstname.lastname@example.org

The IAF currently offers four different types of membership to clubs and organizations (NB not individual falconers); for full details please see Statute Page.
Member (M) - full members pay a membership fee and have voting rights.
Associate Member (AM) - is for countries where falconry is not legal at the moment. They also pay a membership fee and have voting rights.
Corresponding Member (CM) - is by special agreement. They do not pay any membership fee and do not have voting rights. If there is already a Member or Associate Member in a country, applications for Corresponding Memberships are unlikely to succeed.
Observer (O) - observer status may be awarded to worthy organizations that do not yet qualify for membership because they have not been in existence for the requisite two years or for whom we need further information before considering membership.
Supporting Member (SM) - is for organizations whose primary activity is not falconry, but who are pro-falconry in other ways for example specialist museums, wider hunting organizations, rehab centres etc."
NB. - Only ORGANIZATIONS which have IAF membership may use the IAF logo on their promotional material. Observers may not.
