The decision to keep the membership costs the same was made after the IGA had managed to streamline its business and pass the savings on to its members.
Stuart James, Director at the IGA, said: “Through listening to our members we are able to offer them a package that fits their needs perfectly.
“The current membership fee will allow even more businesses to join and benefit from all that the IGA has to offer. We will continue to engage with our members to ensure the association evolves with the needs of the industry.”
This announcement comes on the back of the Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) receiving the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) Approved Centre status.
This means the IGA will benefit by being able to accredit the IMI’s qualifications to its training programme, with the view to expand into new vehicle diagnostic sessions for 2014.
James added: “The IGA dedicates itself to providing quality training therefore this added qualification reinforces our commitment to raising standards in the industry.
“Our training scheme and IMI qualifications are yet another advantage of IGA membership. We are committed to ensuring all our members benefit from their membership and see real value for money.”
