How IAHSP Membership Can Help You Succeed! Top Reasons to JOIN the longest running industry association!

 

If you are in the Home Staging Industry and plan to succeed long term, you need to be part of an industry association that uses the power of membership to provide resources and support that you would not be able to obtain on your own.  However being part of an industry association should not mean being charged for every resource you want, or having membership rates increase to the point where you question affordability.

The International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP) is the longest running industry association that from the start in 1999 put emphasis on industry education as the main criteria for membership.  IAHSP members also adhere to strict Code of Ethics and standards of Excellence with their clients that are guided by IAHSP.

We have thousands of members worldwide, and ALL members have earned one of the IAHSP-Approved designations, credentials, or trainings listed on the www.iahsp.com site.  This sets our association apart as we believe education is a fundamental foundation for success in this industry.  We have foreign Home Staging Association partners throughout Europe and Asia that also recognize the value of aligning with IAHSP.

Furthermore, we honor the training organizations that support our association and recommend IAHSP membership to their graduates.  Any training organization that requests to be IAHSP-Approved will receive our seal of approval following a review of curriculum.  IAHSP will not develop courses that compete with our partner organizations core training offerings.

IAHSP has not raised our membership rates in over a decade.  We focus on adding value to our members and increasing the numbers in our association versus increasing membership rates to the point that it makes members question their participation. and affordability.  

If you are not a member of IAHSP – consider joining today for these reasons:

  1. IAHSP has regional chapters for ongoing networking and support.  Our chapters organize meetings with outside speakers, field trips, and open sharing about industry trends, marketing strategies and much more.  There is no reason for any IAHSP Member to be isolated or alone as any member can remote in to monthly meetings.  In fact, IAHSP launched the very first industry chapter back in 2003, and since that time has helped launch chapters throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
  2. IAHSP has ongoing education and designations offered to help you stay current in your knowledge and skills.  Some of these educational offerings come included with your membership.  Industry Designations are offered at a very reasonable rate compared with other industry trainings.  Our annual Conference & EXPO is the Getaway with a Takeaway – issuing a timely industry designation to all attendees.
  3. You can attend our monthly IAHSP Calls where we have a topic of interest to help your business, and also interview key vendors to allow them to share the latest and greatest information with our members.
  4. MARKETING and BUSINESS PLANNINGTap into the FAST Track Sessions to learn key information to help you with your business.  These power-hour sessions are webinar based so you can attend at your leisure.  FAST Track Sessions come along with your membership.   More FAST Track Sessions are in development.  If there is a topic you would like to learn more about, please let us know!
  5. Social Media – We have open and closed Facebook and LinkedIn Groups that allow you to gain valuable information from industry colleagues and post questions in a safe and supportive environment.  We also have a blog with interesting and valuable articles for our membership to read and share.
  6. IAHSP hosts Regional and International Conferences & EXPOs for our members. These events bring quality education, vendor partners, and valuable networking with industry colleagues from around the globe.  Our Conference draws the top industry business owners that come to learn and share.  Combined with top industry KEY NOTE Speakers, our Conference is an exciting event!
  7. IAHSP has KEY VENDOR PARTNERSHIPS with companies that provide services and products your company needs.  We have negotiated special terms and rates with these companies unavailable to non-IAHSP Members.
  8. The IAHSP Brand is recognized worldwide and using the logos on your business and marketing literature gives credibility for you with your prospective clients.
  9. IAHSP GIVES BACK our association has sponsored Worldwide Staging Service Week (WWSSW) since 2005.  Our chapters and members give back to their communities with projects they coordinate and conduct for worthy individuals, groups, or entities.  Since 2005, IAHSP collectively has donated or contributed over $5 Million in resources, time, and services  No other association has an annual event dedicated to helping those in need.  The IAHSP Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises funds to support WWSSW.
  10. IAHSP is operated by active owners of Staging Businesses – we not only talk the talk, we WALK the WALK.  This is important as we know FIRST HAND the issues and concerns of our colleagues, and what they need in an association.  IAHSP is continuing to provide added-value to our members with an updated website, member portal with access to educational resources and documents to help you grow your business.
