AIS Membership

AIS Membership

The American Iris Society is a nonprofit institution incorporated February 2, 1927, in the County of Philadelphia, State of Pennsylvania. By the terms of the Charter, the Corporation has no stockholders and exists for the sole purpose of promoting the culture and improvement of the Iris.

There are several types of American Iris Society (AIS) memberships. Listed below are the membership rates for the American Iris Society. The various associated AIS Sections and AIS Cooperating Societies have their own separate membership rates. There is a provision to join those societies here as long as you are joining or renewing your AIS membership at the same time. Follow these links for full contact information on: AIS Sections and AIS Cooperating Societies
(Please note that membership information is not available here for local and regional societies. Check with AIS Regional VPs or local club leaders for those membership rates. See the Local Iris Societies listings elsewhere on this website)
