Applying For Membership
Membership applicants are advised to read the INITA membership criteria, and then contact one of the following: an existing INITA member, or the current INITA Secretary, any of whom can assist with advice on the application criteria, process and membership.
Following initial contact with an INITA member, applicants should register their desire to join, by submitting to the current INITA Secretary by email, a brief outline of their company activities, engineering experience & qualifications, curriculum vitae, and required indemnity insurance documents.
Membership applicants are advised to acquire the support of two existing INITA members, to act as sponsor and second for their application. While attending their required two preliminary meetings, applicants will have the opportunity to describe their business activities, and get to know some of the membership, any of whom can be asked to support the membership application.
Attendance of at least two formal INITA meetings is required, the second of which could be the INITA annual general meeting. At their second meeting, applicants are required to give a short presentation about their engineering background, and their current business activities. These introductory presentations are intended to assist the application process, and afford the attending membership a greater appreciation of the applicant's business activities.
On securing the support of two existing members, the applicant’s details and CV will be circulated to all current INITA members. At the next annual general meeting, the membership application will be voted upon by the members in attendance, requiring a simple voting majority for the application to become successful. Applicants will be notified whether or not their application is successful, as soon as is practicable following the AGM, depending on the circumstances at the time of the vote.
Successful membership applicants will be emailed with a welcome letter, advice about the subscription fees they will be required to pay, and an invoice for the same.
Following receipt of all joining and membership fees, a membership certificate will be issued to new members, which will allow them to use the INITA logo on their letter-heading and literature etc.
