Membership Overview

Become a Member

ISKO is an international body with chapters in many different countries and regions. You will find out more about ISKO and its history on our About page. You normally join ISKO through a regional chapter, in our case ISKO KE. ISKO KE fees are paid annually, are valid for 12 months and can commence at any time. Your membership fee automatically makes you a member of ISKO worldwide, as well as a member of the ISKO KE regional chapter.
A proportion of your membership fee goes towards the international activities of ISKO and the access to the ISKO journal Knowledge Organization; the rest of your membership fee goes towards supporting the local and regional activities of ISKO.
ISKO KE has the following membership types:

  • Individual members - are eligible to discounts at ISKO events, and access to the Knowledge Organization journal; if over the age of 21, have the right to vote at General Meetings (including by proxy if you cannot attend in person).

  • Institutional members - have the right to a single vote through their nominated representative at General Meetings, have the right to membership discounts at ISKO KE events for a set number of full-time staff, and a single copy access to the Knowledge Organization journal.

  • Honorary members - individuals who are deemed to have contributed significantly to the field of knowledge organization, and may be elected by a General Meeting of ISKO KE after nomination by the Executive Committee. Honorary members may enjoy all the benefits of paid membership of ISKO KE except that they do not have the right to vote at General Meetings.

  • Affiliate members - members of other regional ISKO chapters or of ISKO. Affiliate members may enjoy the membership discounts at ISKO KE events, but do not have the right to vote at General Meetings of ISKO KE.

  • Individual members: Ksh. 4,000
