How do I become a member?
To become a member of IPFA, please complete the membership form on the Join Us page. Once the completed form is received, an invoice will be raised in your chosen currency. The invoice will also give details of how to pay. Payment by credit/debit card is available but we cannot accept payment by American Express.
What are the benefits of joining IPFA?
Joining IPFA will enable your organisation to become part of an international network of the key public and private institutions active in the infrastructure and energy sectors. Membership of IPFA is on a corporate basis. This allows all your colleagues to make use of the benefits available, enabling them to fully participate in our events as delegates, hosts, co-hosts and as priority speakers, free of charge. View the full list of membership benefits.
What is honorary membership and who is it for?
State owned entities do not automatically qualify for honorary membership. Public sector membership covers government departments, local authorities and PPP Units, development banks, IFIs and export credit agencies. Organisations who operate as a commercial entity with their own profit and loss account and balance sheet would not qualify as honorary members and would need to take out a private sector membership in the region of choice.
My organisation is a public sector entity; can I apply for honorary membership?
Public sector organisations are entitled to join as honorary members, free of charge. To register for honorary IPFA membership, please visit the Honorary Membership page and complete the online form.
Do you provide membership for individuals?
Membership of the IPFA is only offered on a corporate basis. If you are a sole practitioner, please get in touch with our membership team directly to see how you can get involved. For more information about a membership that suits your organisation’s needs please contact the IPFA Membership Team.
Which category should I choose?
Membership is on a regional basis. The category you choose should reflect the region(s) in which you and your colleagues wish to make use of the membership and attend our events. You are able to combine regions or choose ‘Global Membership’ which provides access to all 100+ events we hold annually at a discounted rate. Explore your membership options.
How can I pay for my organisation’s membership?
Once your membership has been approved and an invoice has been sent, you will be able to pay for your IPFA Membership. Payment may be made by direct bank transfer (BACS), cheque (made payable to ‘Project Finance Association’) or by credit or debit card (excluding American Express). To make a payment by credit or debit card, please contact us on +44 (0)20 7427 0900.
Who can use the corporate membership?
Membership is offered on a corporate basis which allows all benefits to be extended to every employee of the member organisation.
Subsidiary or ‘child’ organisations may use their ‘parent’ organisation’s membership, as long as they are a wholly owned subsidiary and do not wish to be represented under a different organisation name or branding. Membership benefits such as hosting, speaking or facilitated introductions are not included.
A separate membership is required, if an organisation is partly owned / wishes to be represented under their own brand / or would like to benefit from the full range of membership services (hosting, speaking, facilitated introductions).
