2014 Membership Info

We hope you are taking full advantage of the cost effective advertising and data research opportunities on your ILR website. Free classified ads are available to all plus photo ads are available if you'd like to advertise with a photo. Researching the ILR database has untold ramifications as to your knowledge when purchasing animals and making breeding decisions. You can ‘see’ who the sires and dams are as far back as they are registered or listed in the ILR database. Once you get into the habit of checking the database for information, you’ll use it regularly.

Your membership dollars go to support your organization for all of the ways they can represent you in furthering our lama breeds plus provide you with more opportunities to enjoy, promote and manage your lama business—for example: one-stop shopping for lama ads, ILR ShowManager use, Show Division participation, the Incentive Fund participation, the ILR Show Division / ILR Universal Awards Programs participation, and various Youth only opportunities including the Pot of Gold. And, don't forget, with the breeder membership you get discounts on registering and transferring!

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.

  • First of all is support for something you believe in, the ILR. Your dollars allow us to promote the breed and to give added value to your animals.

  • Discounts on services.

  • Plus you put yourself in a position to receive certificates and trophies for your showing efforts and all other activities.

  • The opportunity to run for the ILR Board of Directors is available.

  • And additional benefits as listed above.

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. Likewise you must be a member of the ILR Show Division (ILR-SD) for points to count towards your ILR-SD awards.

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