Our New Lifetime Membership Program
One Lifetime Membership $500
Only $950 For Two
Our Silver and Gold Programs Discontinued
New Lifetime Membership + Deals For Spouses, Friends, and Crew Members
We realized that our current membership levels were simply not addressing many potential members’ needs. Some of our members continue to use EXPIRED IPA ID which is against IPA rules.
So no there are opportunities for our members and family with our Press ID that enables you to gain access to events that require press identification for Lifetime.
Married couples also requested Press ID for their spouses so they could both enjoy the many benefits afforded members of the Press. Now they can buy our Lifetime Membership for $950 for the two.
If a couple (or two people) want to join together both will have our Press ID, the cost for the 2nd Person is only $450 For the Lifetime Membership. Payment is due at sign-up.
Imagine being able to take a friend, or assistant, a wife or husband to all the events you cover. Our Press Access makes it possible to not only give you that access but also offers you many other opportunities.
You can travel anywhere that may include press access to museums, bus tours, trade, and consumer shows and so much more.
Many media outlets ask for a corporate rate for their staff when visiting hotels, attractions, museums, and much more. Check to see if they will do the same for you.
One full membership enables these outlets to publish on our sites and enjoy full member benefits and their other staff members can now join as Silver members at a lower cost.
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP IS ONLY $500 FOR A MEMBER
AND $950 FOR TWO MEMBERS
Your Lifetime Membership was decided by our team as the best way to join IPA. We have decided on this program to assure you of continued benefits and you will never have to renew your membership.
Many renewals usually come in months or years after expiration dates. This has put a strain on us to continue to redo the Press ID kits and to process renewals.
The world is going through many changes now and we have decided to do the same. It has become impossible to maintain our websites and add new members to our team. We are hoping this will make things easier for all of us.
Our Support, Your Goals, Friendship
If you are a beginner, or a professional, and are looking to make additional income, or want to enjoy the satisfaction that comes when you see your works published on our sites, then membership is for you.
Some members simply enjoy the things they love to do, writing, photography, or videography. They have found IPA has given them the knowledge and know-how to improve their skills.
Why Should You Do The Work?
IPA members, as all members of the legitimate media, enjoy many benefits and perks. As you read our articles and corporate and member testimonials you will see that our members really do the work. Those members not only receive VIP treatment but are invited to cover many exciting events.
Our members attend and cover concerts, shows, attractions, cruises, travel resorts, trade shows, sporting events and so much more. Just browse the articles on this site and our IMPress site and see the wonderful opportunities.
Do The Work To Enjoy Benefits
You need to do the work to enjoy the many benefits, plain and simple. An IPA press card is simply a means of identification in most cases. Those that grant major media access, or benefits to events, will usually go through a vetting process and some will verify your membership by visiting our website.
Of course, if they discover you are not a current member or look at the expiration date on your cards they will deny you entry or benefits. This has been a major issue and the reason for the new program.
Many companies want to evaluate an individual for possible approval or acceptance. Some may want to see the quality of your work as well as, the quality of our publications.
It is therefore important that you have your work published in our high-quality publications. Having your works published on both IPA and IMPress, means, even more, exposure and credibility.
On some event websites’ press request forms, they will ask for the links to your articles, images, or videos before granting access or benefits. For this and many other reasons, it is easy to publish your work on our sites.
We will determine the quality of your work and offer help if needed. You are a reflection of our organization, so it is a good idea to publish if you feel you can.
Now you have two sites you can point to. If you qualify, IMPress is a great platform to showcase a member’s works, and you can qualify for a staff position there too. There is no extra cost to belong to both sites, it is a perk for those that do the work.
