Member Application

Since the actions of one company can affect the reputation of an entire industry, as a condition of membership, all members of the Illinois Movers’ and Warehousemen’s Association must agree to abide by an enforceable code of conduct. The membership committee review of applications will include research of complaint history with regulatory and consumer agencies and solicitation of comments from existing members (including movers and associate members/suppliers).

All applications must be accompanied by payment in full for one year’s dues and proof of workers’ comp. insurance. Applicant is required to complete IMAWA’s open book test covering Compliance issues, with 75% minimum accuracy.

If admitted to membership, applicant agrees and promises to pay the annual membership dues in a timely manner, abide by the bylaws and other policies and procedures as prescribed by the Board of Directors, subscribe to IMAWA’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and conduct business in an ethical manner consistent with the laws of the State of Illinois and the United States of America, or any subdivision thereof. Failure to meet these obligations may result in suspension or termination of membership and forfeiture of all membership services. Membership will be on probationary status for one year.
