Join the IADA

The benefits of IADA membership

  • Membership of the IADA provides recognition that you are among a limited number of dealers who have demonstrated a proven combination of knowledge, experience and integrity.
  • All IADA members are given a dedicated page on the IADA website. The initial page setup and administration is completely free, and includes the upload of an unlimited number of objects.
  • IADA members are also offered a framed certificate to display in their premises or at exhibitions or fairs.
  • IADA members gain automatic membership to CINOA, the international federation for antique dealers’ associations.

Applying for IADA membership

Applications are welcomed from antique and fine art dealers with exceptional expertise and an established reputation within their field. Applicants should be based on the island of Ireland and have been trading for at least three years.

All membership applications need to be proposed and seconded by an existing member of the IADA. The proposer and seconder do not need to be active in the same field as the applicant. The IADA council will organise a vetting visit to the applicant’s premises.

Members who meet the criteria are then submitted for election by a vote taken by the IADA Council.

Full details about the requirements for membership, or the application process, can be obtained by contacting our Hon Secretary Ian Haslam, by email or by phone on 01-6794147
