Application Forms 

EDUCATOR member application

ASSOCIATE member application

(applications are fillable PDFs - download, save, reopen, insert data, save)

Processing of applications can be done in a timely manner when all required information is received.  Once you are confirmed eligible you will be asked to proceed with making your online membership payment.


Annual Membership Fee

We calculate the membership fees based upon what we call the "Purchasing Power Parity" or "PPP Grouping" which is a pricing structure based on country economic demographics.

To figure out the membership fee which applies to you please click here and follow the instructions for locating your country (the country you live in on a permanent basis) within the "PPP Grouping". Once you have your "PPP Group" number you need to refer to the table below and choose the membership category you classify for.

Example, a person from Russia wants to join IACLE as a full member.  The person would search for Russia under the EAME region in the PPP list and find that Russia is classified in PPP Group 2.  Referring to the table below they must choose the appropriate membership type, in this example, Full Member. Therefore their annual membership fee is US$60.

Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) Level
PPP1 PPP2 PPP3
EDUCATOR Member US$30 US$60 US$100
ASSOCIATE Member US$60 US$120 US$200


Payment Processing Options

There are a variety of ways to pay for membership.  Membership fees are to be paid the year in advance for example in January 2011 members are required to pay their annual fee(s) bringing them paid up until January 2012.

Pay online (preferred method of payment) - approved members are encouraged to renew their membership every January using a secured online payment system (PSiGate).  Click here to proceed to this now...

Cash payments - can be made at your local IACLE office (please do NOT mail cash).
