Standard Membership: $1,500 Annually

Standard Membership in the IEDA is reserved for those companies operating strictly as independent dealers and who have been in business on their own for at least two years prior to applying for membership in the IEDA and have established a reputation for integrity and ethical business practices will be eligible for membership. Brokering is permitted as long as IEDA dealers own the equipment they are maketing for sale. According to the organization by-laws, an “independent” dealer is defined as a company who is not a main line dealer of CAT, Komatsu, Volvo, John Deere or Case.

Associate Membership: $1,750 Annually

Associate Membership is reserved for companies who have been in business on their own for at least two years prior to applying for membership in the IEDA and have established a reputation for integrity and ethical business practices offering a product and/or service to Standard Members, often at a discount or with some level of incentive. The IEDA fully supports the Associate Member base, and encourages members to utilize the products and services being offered to them whenever the opportunity should arise.

Sponsor Level Affiliate: $5,000 Annually

Sponsor Level Affiliation is an acknowledgement of support from organizations and businesses who are not recognized as “Independent Dealers” and therefore do not qualify for membership according to the IEDA organizational by-laws. This level is designed specifically for OEM dealers, equipment manufacturers, auction companies and industry specific organizations who have a proven record of making ethical business decisions.

An application is required to be reviewed by the IEDA Board of Directors before a company is offered membership in the association. If you are interested in joining, please fill out the form below and submit for review. Thank you in advance for your interest in the IEDA.

Gross Annual Revenue
I am submitting an application to the Independent Equipment Dealers Association (IEDA), a non profit trade association representing equipment dealers both within the US and abroad. If my application is accepted, I agree to abide by the IEDA Code of Ethics, and will conduct all business practices in an honest, fair and ethical manner.
I understand and agree to the following: The IEDA reserves the right as an organization to arbitrate and remedy disputes among the membership. All disputes will be handled by a mediation panel that is selected by the Board of Directors to review all circumstances in their entirety. The organization of the IEDA elects to give said mediation panel authority to resolve and remedy all issues brought forth to it for review.
I understand that as a member of the IEDA, I may be asked to provide one or more of the following documents as proof of my authority to do business: * Business License * Resale Certificate * EIN Number
Upon acceptance and approval as an IEDA Standard or Associate Member, I understand and agree to the following:* The IEDA reserves the right as an organization to arbitrate and make recommendations regarding disputes among its membership. The Board of Directors may also make recommendations regarding situations brought to the Board’s attention by non members. All disputes/conflicts brought forth to the Board of Directors for review will be handled by a three person mediation panel appointed by Board Officers. This panel will be charged with reviewing all circumstances in their entirety. Once the mediation panel has spoken to all involved parties, they will share information with the full IEDA Board of Directors in conference. The full Board will then make recommendations based on a quorum vote of the participating Board. The Board makes recommendations only, and does not act in any capacity as “judge and jury” in any situation. The Board does reserve the right to evaluate membership status based on these recommendations. The principal behind this approach to resolving conflict within the membership directly corresponds to the morals and values our members agree to abide by in the IEDA Code of Ethics.
