I just sent in my application and payment. What happens next? Please keep in mind that we are all volunteers, so allow at least two weeks for a response. However, if too much time has passed, please email our Membership Director who will follow up. Once the IEA Membership Director has received notice of your application and payment, she will send you a welcome email. You should also receive an invitation/instructions for creating your member profile and uploading your images and bio to the website.

Your membership renewal is then due one year from your join date and if you haven't received notification, please email the Membership Director to make sure your membership does not lapse.

I don't know much about the computer. How can I get help putting my images and profile on the website? Contact us and a patient volunteer will walk you through how to do this.

How can I begin an IEA Chapter in my area? IEA is an all-volunteer international organization which began from an enthusiastic group of encaustic artists in the San Francisco bay area, it has grown to an international organization because of the popularity of encaustic. There are certain guidelines as to what constitutes an official IEA chapter (and certain benefits). All members of the chapter need to become members of IEA. Email our Chapter Development Chair who will coordinate with you.
