The Premium membership is so-called because this is the level that offers you the MOST benefit. Premium members will have access to resources, savings and benefits that other members simply will not.
This level of IFA membership will be the benchmark standard for industry professionals and tradespeople who are serious about pursuing excellence in their field and collaborating with similarly motivated members.
As a Premium member, you will be entitled to one membership in the state of your choice. You will be invited to join that state’s community, receive invites to member meetings and special events, you’ll hear about opportunities before other members, and have access to information and assistance not available anywhere else.
All Premium members will be entitled to complimentary New Member Introductions in the popular Interior Fitout Magazine (printed and digital), access in some cases to project reviews or designer features within the magazine and generous discounts to exclusive networking opportunities across the fitout industry.
Premium membership to the IFA opens up pathways for members to have a greater voice in the Association’s community, through increased access to a wider range of savings, discounts and incentives.
Only Premium members will be offered the opportunity to expand into other IFA state communities, growing their profile and generating solid returns at a national level.
National Premium Membership
Eligible Premium members will be invited to invest in a National Premium membership, significantly broadening the range of benefits across five states (NSW, VIC, QLD, SA & WA) and putting your business in front of members around the country. This includes invitations to all activities, special events and meetings, raising your profile considerably throughout the IFA community.
National Premium membership attracts a considerable saving compared to taking out multiple Premium memberships for individual states, as well as the recognition of being a national member of the IFA.
Coming in below the Premium membership, the Subscriber membership category is for companies that aspire to be full members but are not necessarily in the financial position to do so.
Naturally, this entry-level category of membership has a much more limited range of benefits and services than is available to Premium members. Access to products, services, savings and discounts is restricted for Subscriber members, as is the level of involvement in the Association’s future direction through voting and representational rights.
While members in this category will find great benefit being recognised within the IFA community, it is the Premium category where professionals will find the most opportunity for maximising their membership benefits.
The Apprentice Membership category is a COMPLIMENTARY membership designed to offer apprentices a step up into the industry and to assist them as they navigate their pathway in their chosen field within the interior fitout community. This complimentary membership category is not a full membership of IFA and as such has limited entitlements. Through this special category, apprentices will be able to access industry-specific information and news, attend industry-related events and access to training opportunities.
Our Student Membership category is a COMPLIMENTARY membership classification offering design students an insight into the retail design industry. This complimentary membership category is not a full membership of IFA and as such has limited entitlements. Students members will be offered access to industry-specific information and news, invitations to industry-related events and access to additional training opportunities through this unique membership category.
