They are four types of members.

- Affiliate Members are members that do not fully comply with the IFABC Constitution and Bylaws but are sufficiently compliant to be welcomed into the body with full participation.
- Associate Membership is for companies who are closely aligned to the industries IFABC serves, for example paper supplies.
- Reciprocity Membership is for other media industry bodies who have similar interests to IFABC and are closely allied with us in terms of associated initiatives .
Only full members have full voting rights and use of the IFABC logo and slogan.
