Check the list of national societies on the website. If there is an established society in your country, click on the link and email to ask about membership. Once you are registered with your national society you will automatically be a member of ISPOG.

Where there is no national society, ISPOG is keen to help groups of interested people to work together to form national groups, consistent with the principles and purposes of ISPOG, with the aim of forming a national society. Where there are several ISPOG members from the same country we will seek your permission to share your details so that you can collaborate if you wish.

For consideration for membership, a national society will:

  • demonstrate formal documents with aims and objectives consistent with ISPOG’s Statues and Standing Rules,
  • supply names and contact details of an elected Board, which typically consists of a minimum of a President, Secretary General and Treasurer.
