IAGC Membership

Our strength is our member companies and their employees who shape the IAGC’s priorities and strategies on issues most important to member companies.

IAGC membership is invaluable. In the IAGC, the G&E industry has a powerful and effective voice. There is no doubt that the Association is a leader in shaping the global energy dialogue using credible scientific, technical and legal analysis. When I think about the benefits of membership, just a few of the things that come to mind are IAGC’s proven proactive strategic approach in working with governments for freedom to operate, the scientific and technical expertise at members’ disposal, the fostering of top-notch HSEQ standards and best practices, and the list goes on. Every membership dollar is used wisely, and we consistently get much more than what we invest.
