JOIN ISIM

WELCOME TO ISIM MEMBERSHIP!

Your membership in ISIM provides support to the organization and its varied projects, including the ISIM annual conferences. It also provides you access to a network of like-minded, creatively driven individuals and organizations that nourish improvised music in a myriad of ways. As ISIM is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, your membership dues are also tax-deductable.

Membership in ISIM occurs at different levels. All membership levels are active for one year from the date of dues payment.  Members receive the ISIM newsletter, have access to the member database, are apprised of announcements about upcoming ISIM events, and are eligible to submit proposals for performances or presentations at the annual ISIM festival/conference. After becoming a member, you can also post your individual concerts, lectures, and other events to the member events calendar.

There are five levels of ISIM membership to choose from. Please click on the membership levels below to find the one that fits your situation.
