Procedure

Obtain an Application Form from the Institute or download and print a copy from this website.
Fill it in.

Only fully completed application forms are considered for review.
Successful applicants are thereafter given notice of acceptance, and a request for payment of the respective subscription fee.
The Individual/organisation can then begin to enjoy the benefits that accrue to members.

Note:
On submission of application, individuals and company representatives are required to submit their detailed CVs, two (2) passport size photographs and company profile.
ICGU is not a mass organisation, and therefore membership is not automatic.
The Membership Relations Committee reserves the powers to determine the admission or rejection of any applicant or cancellation of membership whether individual or corporate if discovered later or during time of engagement with the Institute as having been cited in any gross criminal offence deemed to be damaging to the Institute's Integrity.
It is only when an applicant has fully paid the corresponding subscription fees and submitted all the other requirements that s/he is considered to be a fully-fledged Member of the Institute.
