ILR Memberships

& ILR Show Division Memberships



REMINDER: The ILR-SD showing season is just around the corner. In order to show in the ILR-SD First Annual International Gathering of Friends and Champions on June 17-19, 2011, you must be an ILR-SD member. There are no animal qualifications for this 2011 International Gathering so just get your paperwork in order and plan to attend this Can't Miss Event!
(Click here for more "Gathering" Details)


We’re asking that as many of you as possible GO GREEN and purchase your ILR and ILR-SD memberships online at: Prices are listed on the form.



Q1:  Have I already renewed my membership?

A:  You can check it out in your account on the ILR website. It's easy as 1-2-3.

   1) Log in to your account on the ILR site --


   2) Click on Common Quick Links tab


   3) Click on View Membership Status

Here's what the Membership Summary window looks like.



More FAQs:

Q2:  Are the ILR and ILR-SD memberships two separate memberships?

A:  Yes, they are - except for Youth. See #4 below.

Q3:  Do I need to be a member of the ILR to have an ILR-SD membership?

A:  No, you do not need to be a member of the ILR to have an ILR-SD membership but you receive a $15 discount on your ILR-SD membership if you are an ILR member.

Q4:  What's the difference between the two memberships?

A: The ILR membership gets you over $140 worth of FREE opportunities: FREE classified (currently all classifieds are free even without a membership until further notice) and photo ads on the ILR website (1 for individual memberships and 2 for Farm/Ranch memberships), FREE unlimited event listings, FREE listing on the Farm & Ranch Locator to highlight your llama endeavors, FREE ILR database searches, opportunities to obtain certificate awards and trophies for your showing and beyond the showring activities, a $15 discount on your ILR-SD membership, reduced registration costs, the possibility of being involved in the ILR Incentive Fund  and voting privileges. Note: You must be a member of the ILR at the time of the activity for points to count in the ILR Universal Awards Program (ILR-UAP). Points are not credited retroactively.

The ILR SHOW DIVISION membership first of all is support for something you believe in, the ILR-SD. Your dollars allow us to provide showing opportunities for all. Plus you put yourself in a position to receive certificates and trophies for your showing efforts and to be committee members. Note: You must be a member of the ILR-SD at the time of the shows in order to receive points. Points are not credited retroactively.

Q5:  Are Youth memberships available?

A: Yes, beginning in 2011, a $10 Youth Membership (18 and under) gets youth both an ILR and ILR-SD membership which allows youth to participate in both the ILR-SD and UAP awards programs. Youth also receive points themselves in both programs -- not just the animals as with adults.

If you don’t know when your membership expires, feel free to contact us by e-mail at or call us at (406) 755-3438 to find out.


     WIN/WIN of ILR Membership

1)   The #1 WIN for you is that you receive over $140 in value for a membership fee of $50 one year / $90 two years (plus reduced fees per person if there is more than one member at an address), FREE online advertising, FREE online searches, plus reduced registration and transfer fees as benefits of membership and more! Check it out at

2)   The WIN for the ILR, which in turn is another WIN for you, is that membership fees allow us to provide llama owners more opportunities to enjoy, promote and manage their llama businesses—for example: one-stop shopping for llama ads, the ILR ShowManager, the Show Division, and the Incentive Fund and Universal Awards Programs.


Reminder: Due to the high cost of processing, we no longer accept American Express and Discover cards.

Thank you for YOUR SUPPORT for YOUR Registry and Show Division!

ALONE we struggle; TOGETHER we thrive!
