Supporters and Exhibitors of IADMS
A number of organizations and companies have been loyal supporters of IADMS for many years, and we thank them for their continued support. The Development Committee is looking to increase this group. There are varied levels of support opportunities, including Major Supporter, Annual Supporter, Meeting Supporter, Meeting Exhibitor, and Friend. Each support level offers a range of benefits for promoting the supporter organisation/company and services to the membership of IADMS and to the wider dance medicine and science community. Exhibitors at the IADMS Annual Meeting are able to display their products and demonstrate their services to dance medicine and science practitioners from around the world. Send an email to the Development Committee for details on how to become an IADMS Supporter.
This category of membership enables IADMS to invite high-profile international dance artists and directors to act as ambassadors for IADMS. A brief bio and photo of current Honorary Members can be found here.
IADMS membership is made up of a wide range of individuals actively connected with the healthcare, education, administration and supervision of dancers as well as dancers themselves. The Development Committee carries out surveys of IADMS membership to ensure that members in all categories receive attractive and appropriate benefits of membership. Current membership benefits are listed here.
The Development Committee is always exploring new fundraising initiatives. As a non-profit organization, fundraising is essential for IADMS. It aims to engage the membership in expanding contacts to maximise the reach of our organisation and support our work. For further information please contact the Development Committee.
