Please note: The AIPP welcomes members at all stages of their professional freelance career. As such, we have few requirements save for one: you must have a website that clearly represents your business.
If you’re interested in either interacting with the AIPP or joining as a paid member, please review the membership benefits below to determine whether you wish to join. Although we have a wealth of benefits, members most frequently say that the support structure the AIPP provides is the most beneficial to their businesses.
