Current Members

Membership is by calendar year. We encourage members to consider renewing for two years at a time, since this is more efficient for the volunteer Membership Secretary. Reminders are sent to members early in the year to ask them to renew their memberships.

Please indicate "IRSCL" in the subject line of all emails sent to the Membership Secretary ( She can also be reached through regular mail at the following address:

The IRSCL has implemented a staggered fee structure for 2020 and 2021 based on employment status and country of origin economic status. In addition to the discounted Student and Retired categories, we have now included Precariously Employed and Low and Middle Income Country (LMIC) categories. Please direct any confidential inquiries to the Membership Secretary at the address above. A list of the World Bank designated LMIC countries is available here.

If you have any queries about the status of your membership or need to update your contact information, please contact the IRSCL administrator at:
