Electronic Membership (updated February 12 2012)
AIS Electronic Membership: The AIS announces a new membership service - Electronic Membership. AIS Emembership is separate from the normal AIS membership. Emembers do not receive printed copies of the AIS Bulletins. Instead, they have access to online AIS Bulletins using an easy to use viewer. Emembers also have access to online viewing of The Basic Iris Culture booklet and access to irisregister.com, the online database of iris registrations and introductions. Addtitional services may be made available in the future.
You may purchase an AIS Emembership through the AIS Membership information area of the website.
Once you have obtained your AIS Emembership you will be provided with a user name and password to access the special Emembership area content. You need to use these to log on and access the area.
To log on the the main Electronic Member Services area please click here: Emembers Services area
Notes: If you had previously signed up for AIS Emembership either via the AIS PayPal service or by sending a check to the AIS Membership Secretary, you will be given your full subscription time effective starting 12/1/2011.
To view the online publications, users will need the Adobe Flash Player. Many computers already have this installed as it is a standard and common program. If for some reason your computer does not, the Flash Player is free and may be downloaded from the Adobe website: Flash Player download
