Help sustain the iiE while getting back even more in benefits than the cost of the membership! There are several tiers of memberships for individuals and organizations, and sponsorship opportunities for supporting particular Gatherings or projects. We’re also always looking for potential partnerships for co-hosting gatherings or collaborating on other initiatives.
The easiest way to become a member or become a sponsor is to use our Square payment page. If you wish to use a different payment method, please contact us. Note that iiE finances are handled through our fiscal partner, the nonprofit corporation InGlobal.
If you are interested in attending a Gathering outside of Michigan, USA, please contact us for pricing information.
