Membership fees

During the IFCM General Assembly on July 29, 2019, in Lisbon, a new membership structure including revised benefits was explained to the members present at the meeting who unanimously approved it. This new system of membership fees and benefits is now more transparent. For the first time IFCM presented a new type of membership – a lifetime membership which will correspond better to the expectation of a certain group of members. The most relevant aspects of this new structure is in the table here below. For questions on sponsoring space or free space offered in some categories, please contact the office at

New Country Groups for Membership Fees - 1 January 2024

The IFCM membership fees vary according to three country groups. These lists of countries were established with reference to each country’s Gross Domestic Product and Gross National Income as measured by the United Nations. A non-monetary development indicator was also used to determine the country groupings. The IFCM Board carefully reviewed these lists and a motion was passed to accept the three country groups, keenly aware that the past few years have been challenging for the choral world and its supporters.
