We kindly ask all to complete a basic questionnaire on their activities. Together with the elegibility criteria, the information provided by the applicant association in this questionnaire will help the IPA Membership Committee and General Assembly to form a view as to whether your Association fulfils IPA's criteria for a given membership category. The IPA General Assembly decides, at its discretion, whether or not to accept any given application.
The application process itself, which leads up to the request for membership addressed to the General Assembly, is administered by the IPA Secretariat and will depend on the particular circumstances of each applicant. IPA generally asks applicants to make themselves available for a personal meeting at an international publishing event, e.g. during a major international book fair, or the next IPA Copyright Congress, to discuss the aspects raised in the questionnaire.
