How to Join IAM

Membership in IAM is an important step in growing your business and making your company known among industry peers. The IAM Mission is to be the global champion for the moving industry by advancing the professionalism and operational excellence of our members.

Join Requirements

To consider your company for IAM membership, we encourage applicants to verify that you meet the qualifications to the join the IAM community.

Companies must have been in business for at least one year and be able to provide a business registration license. The business registration license must support that the prospective IAM member company can legally operate in that state/country where it is domiciled. The name on the business registration license must also match the company name on the application.

Membership Application Process

To complete the membership application, please provide the following:

  • Two sponsorship letters from current members of IAM, written on their companies' letterhead and signed by a company official, recommending your company for membership:
  • Provide a PDF of your business registration license as proof that your company has operated for at least one year;
    • The company name applying for membership must be the same on the business registration license;
    • A certified translated English license must be provided if the license is not in English; and
    • If your company is participating in the Validation program, the license should demonstrate the number of years your company has been in business.
  • The completed online membership application form.

Once the items referenced above have been verified, IAM will post your company name on the IAM prospective member list for 30-days. At the end of the 30-day period, your company will become an official IAM member, unless we receive member comments or information that would necessitate further evaluation by IAM.
