How to join IFAJ

How to form a National Association of Agricultural Journalists and join IFAJ

If you live in a country that does not have an IFAJ-member association, you can join together with other professionals involved in agricultural communications (writing, editing, photography, public relations, web, broadcast, electronic, farm organization communication management). The IFAJ strongly recommends individuals in each country to band together and form a national association of agricultural journalists. Here you can find information how you can set up a national guild if your countries’ agricultural journalists are not yet organized.
If there is a national organization present, we recommend that you apply for IFAJ membership as a member-country. You will profit from the global network, from professional development activities, from participation in awards and many more.
To do this, you must provide IFAJ with a letter requesting IFAJ membership, a description of your association and members, a list of your board members and a copy of your association's constitution in an official IFAJ language (English, German, French). To see a sample constitution, click here. Your association’s request for membership will be considered at an upcoming general assembly of the IFAJ.

There is a membership fee. 

For any questions on this subject, you can contact the IFAJ global manager at globalmanager(at)ifaj.org.
