Joining IMHN is free. When you fill in our membership form, two things will happen

  1. You will receive a confirmation email confirming the information you submitted;

This welcome email will allocate you to your local branch.

If there is no branch local to you at the time you sign-up, we can provide support in helping you get one set up.
