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