Can anybody join?


The answer is a clear no... The International Association of Personal Protection Agents has existed for over three decades insisting on quality. Our members benefit from a strong network and each new member must be an addition for everybody. That's why one cannot simply become a member by applying and paying, as it is usual with other organizations. We don't want to be the biggest organization - we are a family.


What is the procedure?


Once you fill out the application form on the UISA Website and your request will be sent to our steering committee where your credentials and vita will be analyzed. Each application is personally reviewed by the president who will make a final decision. It can be approved, rejected, or the board may request additional information/documentation.


What if I get rejected?


Being a very exclusive group and for all members to benefit, membership applications are rejected from time to time, if the board is not convinced that the association and its members will benefit from it. In that case, the person will be notified and will be given the chance to appeal.


Don't worry: Any rejected application receives a full refund. We highly encourage anyone interested in our work to apply.
