Renew Your ICA Membership Early!

Posted By ICA Membership Department, Monday, August 5, 2019

The Membership Team at the International Communication Association (ICA) wishes to welcome you to the new membership term. At ICA, we strive to be your most valuable professional asset. We are now accepting membership applications and renewals!


Membership at ICA runs from 1 October – 30 September annually, and is not prorated. To take full advantage of your annual benefits, we recommend renewing by 30 September. Renewing ensures you continue to uninterruptedly receive ICA member benefits, some of which include: 

  • Online access to ICA's 6 Journals

  • Networking opportunities

  • Discounted conference registration price & CIOS membership

  • ICA travel grant eligibility

  • Service opportunities in leadership roles

  • Voting privileges, and more!

Returning Member? To renew, simply login to your ICA profile, and click on the link to securely renew which will appear right above your profile picture. If you need to change your membership type, please contact us at membership@icahdq.org

New to ICA? Create a member profile and join ICA, click here: https://www.icahdq.org/general/register_member_type.asp , and select one of ICA’s individual membership types. If you're unsure which type is the best fit, email us at membership@icahdq.org, we're happy to guide you!

ICA Membership Types: 

  • Emeritus: When Active Members reach the age of 65 years, a transfer to Emeritus status may be requested if they have been Active Members for at least 20 years immediately prior to making the request.

  • Employment Exception (by application only): Includes PhDs who are no longer students and do not have a permanent position but may be putting together a living wage by teaching part time in several universities during the same academic year; those who are only on a visiting appointment for one year but have no future employment at that or any other university or organization; those who are on a fixed term contract for less than 3 years such as research associates or research fellows; as well as other part time arrangements both within and outside academe. To apply, contact membership.  Your application must include letter(s) from your supervisor, or a copy of your contract, describing the condition of your employment (salary information may be redacted);   include also a completed copy of this form in your email: www.icahdq.org/resource/resmgr/docs/individual_membership_applic.pdf

  • Family: Designed for spouses or families who are all scholars or practitioners in the field of communication research. 

  • Institutional Membership: A university department can join ICA as an Institutional Member (please note that libraries are ineligible for membership). The membership consists of one primary "Point of Contact" (typically the department chair) and additional institutional members in groups of five, 10 or 15 Additional Institutional Members (a discount applies, the more you add, the greater the discount). Learn more about this membership type and view pricing h ere; Ready to join as an Institutional member? Click here for step by step instructions on joining this type and adding members. Note: if you are transitioning from an individual membership type to this group membership type, you must create a NEW unique member profile (you may use the same email address, but your username must be unique). 

  • Life: Includes all future conference fees and membership dues. Additionally, Life members may join as many Divisions and Interest Groups as they wish, at no extra cost. Life memberships can be paid in a single installment or in four consecutive annual installments.

  • Regular: ICA’s most popular membership type. It is ideal for scholars and practitioners of all fields of communication research who have earned their PhD or for individuals who now work within their field.

  • Student: Individuals who qualify for Student Membership in ICA are currently enrolled in school. This includes ABD candidates.

  • Sustaining: Show support for ICA student members! This membership includes a regular membership, one conference registration, and a US$40 donation to the Student Travel Fund. This donation helps to sustain and support ICA’s grant program.

ICA is an academic association for scholars interested in the study, teaching, and application of all aspects of human and mediated communication. ICA began more than 50 years ago as a small association of U.S. researchers and is now a truly international association with more than 4,800 members in 80 countries. Since 2003, ICA has been officially associated with the United Nations as a non-governmental association (NGO).
