Am I eligible to join the IoD?

Most senior business owners or leaders are eligible to join the IoD. This would include business owners, and senior leaders, regardless of the organisation size or sector (for example, commercial, hospital trust, military, non-profit, government).

In other words, if you are responsible for strategic leadership in your organisation, in most instances, you will be eligible to become a member.

You can join either as an associate or a full member, and your membership grade is based on the combination of total years’ business experience, total years in a senior role, and turnover or budget. Associate and Member grades give you an identical package of benefits and services and the membership subscription fees are the same.

However, as a Member of the IoD, you would also be entitled to use the designation MIoD after your name for the duration of your membership. If you join as an Associate member, you may upgrade your membership in the future when your circumstances change to meet the member criteria.
