Membership Fees and Instructions


There are two types of membership to IAOHRA: (1) Voting Member (governmental, commission, labor) and (2) Sponsoring (nonvoting) Member. Anyone wishing to join should submit the appropriate form and fee to IAOHRA. Click here for dues payment information.


All State, County and Municipal Human Relations Commissions join as Voting Members. The Commission only pays one fee for the actual agency (“The Commission”) based on the population of your jurisdiction. Then each individual Commissioner or staff member can join as an “Individual” (non-voting) member, for only $50 annually.
