Join ILDA

Membership in ILDA is open to companies, organizations and individuals who manufacture or use laser display devices or services. Members must affirm their commitment to ILDA's Code of Ethics and to safe laser shows; for more information, see our Membership Requirements. Memberships are subject to review by the ILDA Board of Directors as per ILDA's Bylaws.

Note for companies interested in the ILDA Accredited Professional Lasershow Company program: IAPLC is a separate accreditation process. You cannot sign up for IAPLC membership or status on this website. You must apply through the accreditation process which is detailed on the IAPLC page at ILDA's main website. After review and approval, we will manually update your status to reflect that you are an Accredited Professional company.

  
  

Discount for new members joining in mid-year

ILDA's dues year runs from January 1 to December 31.

  • Current members pay full dues, no matter when during the year they renew.
  • New members joining between January 1 and March 31 also pay full dues. There is a prorated "mid-year" discount for new members joining between April 1 and October 31. New members joining during November and December pay full dues and get the remainder of the current year plus all of the next year (e.g., 14 months of membership for the price of 12).

Members in the past 3 years pay full dues

Note that there is no mid-year discount for current and recent past Members. This is to avoid a situation where Members let their membership lapse, and then rejoin in the middle of the year to try and save money. Instead, current and recent past Members pay the full membership dues no matter when in the year they renew (or rejoin).

"Recent past Members" means if a company or person was an ILDA Member in any of the three years immediately preceding the current membership year.

  • For example, if you were a Member in 2014, and you wanted to rejoin during 2017, you would pay full price. This is because you were a member during one of the three years immediately preceding 2017 (e.g., 2014, 2015 and 2016). In 2018 you will have been out of ILDA for four years, so you can join as a "new" member and be eligible for any applicable mid-year discount.

How to choose between Corporate, Individual, Hobbyist and Student

If you are doing laser shows commercially and wish to use your ILDA membership and the ILDA Member logo to promote your business, you should be a Corporate Member. Even if you are just one person and not a corporation or LLC, you still can join as a Corporate Member if you are doing commercial shows and want to use your ILDA membership and ILDA Member logo to promote your business.

If you are a person who is not employed by an ILDA Corporate or Nonprofit Member, you are eligible for an Individual, Hobbyist or Student membership. You can decide whether you prefer to join as an Individual or as a Hobbyist (or if you are a full-time registered student, you may choose to join as a Student).

Your choice may depend on how you wish to be listed, the benefits such as votes that you wish to receive, and the dues that you wish to pay.

  • Individual Members have one vote, can run for the Board of Directors, and can be voting members of a committee. Annual dues are $130.
  • Hobbyist and Student Members do not have a vote, cannot run for the Board of Directors, and cannot be voting members of a committee (they can participate in the committee discussions). Annual dues are $95 for Hobbyists and $50 for Students.

Individual, Hobbyist and Student Members cannot use their ILDA membership to promote commercial laser display activities. If you are doing laser displays commercially, join as a Corporate or Nonprofit Member.

For more information, see the page Restrictions on Individual, Hobbyist & Student Members.
