Spa Industry Association Membership

Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: What types of memberships does the Spa Industry Association (SIA) offer?
A:  SIA offers two types of memberships – a free membership and a Membership PLUS.  The free membership entitles you to receive the regular SIA newsletter. The Membership PLUS is a paid membership program that became available in February 2022 and provides benefits valued at $500 for only $99 per year. 

Q: When did the Membership PLUS program begin?
A: The Membership PLUS program was introduced in February 2022 as an annual paid membership program developed to connect spa industry professionals with exclusive benefits from our well-established partner relationships.  This program allows us to give member-based discounts on products and services from a wide variety of participating partners and suppliers as well as educational content, industry reports and networking features both online and at live events.  The Membership PLUS includes $500 in benefits for an up-front fee of $99/year or $10/month for twelve months. 

Q: I have been an SIA member for years, am I still considered a member?
A: If you were an SIA member before February 2022, then you are still considered a free member and you will continue to receive your regular SIA newsletter and access to the free resources on the SIA website.  However, free members will no longer have access to the Resource Library which contains on-demand webinars and podcasts, valuable industry articles and vendor resources. 

Q: What do I need to do to become part of the Membership PLUS program?
A: If you are a current free SIA member, then you will need to upgrade your membership to a Membership PLUS by completing the form on the Upgrade page.  If you are not sure of your membership status, don’t worry, we’ll check your appropriate status once you fill out the form on the Membership page and indicate you want to become part of Membership PLUS.     

Q: Will I get discounts to the IECSC spa show?
A: Yes! After April 2022, Membership PLUS members will receive discounts to educational programs at the International Esthetics, Cosmetics & Spa Conferences.
