The IDA Delegate program is an opportunity for individuals who either do not want to create a Chapter, or else lack the minimum three members required to establish a Chapter, to do important dark sky advocacy volunteer work on behalf of the IDA.
IDA Delegates will be publicly identified as an official IDA Delegate on IDA’s website. As necessary IDA Delegates, will receive support and assistance from IDA to formally represent IDA’s mission and vision in their community and host IDA events.
The IDA Affiliate Program formalizes a relationship with an existing organization that typically would already have its own 501(c)(3) status and desires to “affiliate” with the IDA in order to further the IDA’s mission and goals.
IDA Affiliates will be publicly identified as an official IDA Affiliate on IDA’s website. As necessary IDA Affiliates, will receive support and assistance from IDA to formally represent IDA’s mission and vision in their community and host IDA events.
Staffed by volunteers from around the globe, our chapters act as local bases for IDA, helping more of us to have better nights. IDA chapters organize events such as dark sky festivals, conferences and star parties, while working to educate their communities and government officials about the importance of protecting night skies, eco-friendly outdoor lighting, and much more.
