Why You Should Become an Official HMC Interest Group Member: The best way to become involved in HMC research at ICA and to show your support for this growing area is to become an official IG member. Your official membership is important because ICA uses membership numbers to determine continuation of the IG. The US$3 dues are the primary means of financial support for the IG. As a member you will have certain opportunities and rights, including the ability to vote in elections and run for office.
How to Become an Official HMC Interest Group Member: ICA is now in its membership renewal period and has informed us that the best way to become an IG member is while renewing your general ICA membership. Here are the steps provided by ICA:
1. "Log in" (https://www.icahdq.org/login.aspx)

3. Review/make any necessary changes and save profile info
4. Select HMC from the list of divisions & IGs
5. Enter payment info
6. Select the "submit securely" button at the bottom of the renewal page
