Questions about IAOP membership?memberservices@iaop.org.


Membership in IAOP provides access to an extensive array of services, and just as importantly distinguishes organizations and professionals as leaders in the field of outsourcing.

Customer Corporate Membership

Organizations that are currently outsourcing or are considering one or more outsourcing initiatives should become Customer Corporate Members of IAOP. This membership provides organization-wide access to the association’s research, training, certification, and networking programs  – all designed to help companies achieve better business results through outsourcing.

Provider/Advisor Corporate Membership

Outsourcing service providers and advisory firms should join IAOP as Provider/Advisor Corporate Members.  This membership provides the same organization-wide access to IAOP’s research, training, certification and networking programs as Customer Corporate Membership, but also includes member-only sponsorship opportunities that serve the marketing and business development needs of these companies.

Professional Membership

Professional Membership is available to individuals either as part of their company’s Corporate Membership or on an individual basis. This membership serves the needs of practitioners working in the field of outsourcing as customers, providers or advisors. In addition, it provides these professionals with direct, personal access to association services. In order to ensure a free-flowing exchange of information among all of its members, IAOP maintains a strict non-solicitation policy.

Associate Membership

Associate Membership is IAOP’s free membership, which allows attendance at one chapter meeting as an IAOP guest and access to select online resources. You will be added to our database to receive emailed updates on what’s happening at IAOP.

Student Membership
