Refer a New IACP Member for 50% Off

Renew or join IACP now, then contact us for a customized referral code. When your referral code is used to purchase a new IACP membership (or to renew a membership that’s been lapsed for more than five years), we’ll give you a percentage refund! Here’s how it works:

  1. Renew your IACP membership or join IACP as a new member for the 2018/19 year.
  2. Email for your personalized referral code. This referral code lets new members (and members who have not renewed since 2013) take 50% off any level of IACP membership.
  3. Promote your referral code to friends and colleagues through email, social media, blog, snail mail, or carrier pigeon!
  4. When someone uses your referral code to purchase an IACP membership, they’ll automatically get 50% off their selected membership level. Remember: this code is only for new members, and those who have not been a member since 2013.
  5. Once someone uses your referral code to purchase a membership, you’ll receive a percentage refund of your membership fee. This refund percentage is based on the membership level your discount code brought in. For example: If a new member uses your referral code to purchase a Professional level membership, you’ll receive a $115 refund. If they purchase an Emerging Professional level membership, you’ll receive $42.50. You can receive up to the total amount of your membership fee in refunds!
Your discount code has unlimited uses throughout the membership year, so post the code up on your blog or website. This is your chance to spread the word of IACP, and get a bit back in return!

Promotion Rules:

  • Members can receive refunds up to the full price of their membership. Refunds will not exceed the cost of a membership. Members with complimentary IACP memberships can be provided a referral code but are not eligible for refunds.
  • Discount codes can only be used for membership purchases by new IACP members and members who have not renewed their membership since 2012. Anyone using a code who is ineligible for the discount will be asked to pay the full price of membership and may have their membership canceled until full payment is received.
  • ​Refunds will be processed by the IACP accounting team and may take up to 6 weeks to process. If you have questions about a refund please email
