IGFOA Public Sector New Member Incentive Plan

  • The incentive is for new government members only (never a member of IGFOA.)
  • The new government member will pay a prorated membership rate based off of the month joined. For example, the cost of a government entity adding an additional member is $100. If the member joins in July, the amount invoiced would be $50 (i.e. $8.33 per month).

New members eligible to participate in this program should contact IGFOA at or (630) 942-6587.

IGFOA Application for Dues Reduction for Special Districts and Special Circumstances

The Membership Committee offers a special program to reduce membership dues for special districts and special circumstances. Special districts are governmental entities that have a large population base but minimal revenues. Special circumstances refers to situations where a member is employed by a government entity but would be required to pay membership dues out-of-pocket (rather than the government entity). 

Please complete this application to request a reduction in IGFOA annual dues to the lowest member rate of $150. Email the completed application and a copy of your organization’s most recent annual financial statement (for special districts) to the IGFOA’s Executive Director at The IGFOA Membership Committee will review the application and notify applicants of their decision.
