International Greeter Association

Start a New Greeter Organization!

Planning to start a new Greeter organization?

Do you plan to start a  new Greeter organization?

It is great that you are interested to start a new Greeter organization in your city or region!
We are here to assist and can guide you through the process from start to finish. It is easier then you may think…
The International Greeter Association is the democratic organization of Greeters around the world. We ask new members to meet with only four requirements:

  • Agree to the IGA core values
    The IGA core values describe what Greeters around the world stand for. With the final membership application this document has to be accepted formally.
    You can find the IGA core values on this page.
  • Be a group of Greeters
    A minimum of five Greeters (or three for the start) secures the stability of the local Greeter service.
    This requirement may sound daunting but in our experience you will have no problems getting five Greeters together. You will be surprised how many of your family, friends, colleagues or neighbors will find the Greeter concept fascinating and therefore willing to participate.
  • Have a dedicated website
    You can either build your own dedicated website or use a free presentation on our website.
  • Join Facebook group “IGA network managers”
    A closed Facebook group “IGA network managers” is a priority channel for changing information among Greeter organizations and between IGA Board and members.

So take the first step in the Greeter journey. We will help you as much as we can…

Please fill out our contact form and we will soon be back with all the information and help you need!
