Membership: Terms and rates

 

IRE now offers automatic membership renewals!

Your IRE membership can be conveniently renewed at the start of each membership year when you sign up for automatic renewal. This means that at the beginning of your membership year, we will charge you automatically for the next membership period to guarantee uninterrupted access to benefits, services, and subscriptions. An e-mail reminder will be sent so that you’ll know exactly when the transaction will take place. You will also have the opportunity to edit your credit card information, opt out of the auto-renewal program, or update your information. Please call Amy at 573-884-1444 to enroll.
