Membership Options

There are two payment options for gaining an IFGA membership. The first option is a yearly membership. This will expire every year and is $25 per year. You can expect to receive notifications when your membership is about to expire, however it is each members responsibility to renew once a year to continue to receive membership benefits. This is a good option for those who are relatively new to the hobby and are seeking knowledge to become better breeders.

The second option we have for our members is a lifetime membership, which will never expire. This is a one time payment of $150 and will never have to be renewed.

All personal contact information will be kept confidential and will not be shared, sold or otherwise used for anything outside of the IFGA.

We hope you will reach out to other members of IFGA and try to find friends and mentors in your area. It is incredibly helpful to have a mentor if you are new to the hobby and we have so many experienced members willing to help those that are new to showing and breeding guppies! Attending meetings at one of our local clubs is the fastest way to learn and improve your breeding skills. All of our clubs welcome and support new members.

Make sure you also visit the members section to get the full benefits of membership with the wonderful standards, library, archives, ebulletin and more!
