ARCOM Membership


The Africa Institute of Researchers and Scholars (AIRS) brings together all those interested in construction management research. Its aim is to further the advancement of knowledge in all aspects of management in construction by supporting education, dissemination and research. Our lively quarterly newsletter keeps members in touch with the latest AIRS news. The highly acclaimed annual conference brings together researchers from all over the world.

Various research workshops provide a means to develop specific subject themes as well as general research methodology. Our publications form a very useful resource for all researchers in this field.

These activities help to encourage excellence in the research of our members. Our members include research students, lecturers, professors, consultants, other practitioners and institutions. Although we are primarily a Africa association, we welcome members from all over the world. It provides opportunities for contact between researchers in similar fields and between researchers and practitioners.

There are two types of memberships: individual membership and institutional membership.

Individual membership
Individual membership is open to any interested person. Individual members pay an annual membership fee (from 1st May to 30th April). There are two types of individual memberships and their associated costs are as follows:

  • Full membership:
  • Student membership:

Individuals taking out individual membership will enjoy the membership discount at AIRS conferences which is currently. (Please note only paid-up members are eligible for the discount.)
To join AIRS as an individual member, please click here to first create a MyAIRS online account, then register yourself as a member.

Institutional membership
Institutional membership relates only to Postgraduate Researchers. This enables a University Department to pay a single fee for all of its Postgraduate Researchers. The fee for institutional membership is determined by the number of Postgraduate Researchers registered in the Department concerned. The annual subscription (from 1st May to 30th April) for institutional membership payable by university departments is based on a flat band fee. The rates are as follows:

  • University departments with 1-10 postgraduate researchers:
  • University departments with 11-20 postgraduate researchers:
  • University departments with over 20 postgraduate researchers:

What we provide for our institutional membership includes the following:

  • University departments taking out institutional memberships will have their names included on the AIRS website and prominently within the conference proceedings and abstracts book.
  • Postgraduate Researchers at university departments taking out institutional membership will enjoy the membership discount for AIRS conferences, which is currently  (though note that staff members will not receive a discount unless they are individual members).

To join AIRS as an institutional member, please contact the Membership Secretary for full details.
