The IAIPSIG is a nonprofit professional association whose mission is to preserve and promote integrity, honesty, impartiality and professionalism in the work of IPSIGs, monitors and independent investigators. IAIPSIG is a forum for the exchange ideas by its members as well as a means of providing the public with information about the IPSIG concept and the work of IPSIGs, monitors and independent investigators.
Membership of the IAIPSIG is open to both qualified organizations and qualified individuals. Members must adhere to the principles and standards of conduct set forth in the IAIPSIG Code of Ethics.
A qualified organization is a law firm, accounting firm or private investigative firm that is licensed and qualified to do business and agrees to observe the IAIPSIG's Code of Ethics. A qualified individual is: (a) an attorney, accountant or a private investigator who is licensed or otherwise accredited to work in his or her profession; or (b) a member of another relevant profession who is determined by the IAIPSIG Membership Committee to be qualified; and in either case agrees to observe the IAIPSIG's Code of Ethics.
The basic annual membership fee is $1,000 for organizations. This entitles the organization to designate three individual officers or employees as members of the IAIPSIG. Additional officers or employees may be designated as members for an additional $500 per person, or $1,000 for three or multiples of three persons. Individual officers and employees who are nominated for membership of the IAIPSIG must fulfill the criteria for individual membership. The basic annual fee for individuals is $500.
