The Society is fortunate that the children and teenagers who attend our conferences and events play an active and vital role in the organisation now and hopefully in the future. Giving the children and teenagers an opportunity to become members of the Society in their own right, would in our view give them a great sense of ownership of the organisation, and increase their participation in the organisation.
Junior Membership is available for children between the ages of 7 and 12 years, and Youth Membership is available for teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 years.
Parents are able to sign up their child/teenagers at I.H.S. events only.
