About Benefactor Membership:

Over its history, IARI has depended on many in the community to become benefactor members of IARI, even though benefactor membership does not by itself confer any special benefits or privileges. 

The word benefactor comes from Latin bene (good), and factor (maker). A benefactor is a person who gives some form of help to benefit a person, group or organization. 

It simply allows those who are financially able to contribute a little more towards their community organization than the minimum required for membership. IARI appreciates and depends on this generous support from our community members.

Important Note about Family Membership:

  • For the purpose of IARI membership, a family consists of a member, his/her spouse and all children under 18 residing at the same address.
  • Please obtain individual membership for all other adult members of your family who wish to take advantage of membership benefits. 
  • We request you to have a unique email address for the member and his/her spouse each. Having a unique email address for the member and the spouse will enable both the member and the spouse to vote online for all IARI voting.
