How to become a Member

There are many benefits to joining the Association outlined on the IANO Website. For anyone interested in becoming a member of our local branch, you can register online or contact any of the committee members; we would be only too delighted to have new members join our local branch. The benefits of joining our branch include being part of a professional group where we continue to develop our knowledge and skills, as well as gaining support and expertise from other colleagues within our discipline. The annual cost of being a member is outlined in the IANO website. Network meetings are held every 3months and these meetings are the basis whereby we plan our educational events, as well as discuss any relevant topics of information. Members are informed via email/notice board.
