Membership Benefits


Membership Directory

One of the benefits of belonging is connecting with other members and building relationships that will not only benefit you from a business perspective but also you progress in your career. As a member, you gain access to login to our membership directory, so that you can find other IGIA members. Additionally, we strive to promote IGIA member businesses to our green industry partners and to the buying public.  We do that through the membership directory on the home page of and our consumer-facing website
