There are many benefits that an industry gets from having an association (coordination, representation, sharing best practice, collaborating on challenge legislation etc), however, the most important benefit to an individual company is the new business opportunities and market knowledge that comes from networking with other members.
ILiA welcomes all organisations involved in the global lithium value chain, from mines and refineries through to OEMs and recyclers. There are three types of membership:
WANT TO BE PART OF THE ASSOCIATION?
Core Members are companies that produce lithium raw materials from their own mineral and/brine resources.
Core Members provide strategic leadership for the association and are the driving force behind its work. Core Members form the Executive Committee and Sub-Committees, and vote at the AGM.
Associate Members are all other commercial organisations in the lithium supply chain, including end users (glass, ceramics, grease, metallurgy…), battery material manufacturers, cell makers, OEMs, non-integrated refiners, analysts, samplers, explorers, resource developers, financial institutions and recyclers. Associate members play a key role in ILiA’s working groups and vision. As key downstream stakeholders, Associates can join Sub-Committees, attend all ILiA events at member rates, and observe plenary sessions and the AGM.
Affiliate membership is available to non-commercial organisations such as academia, government bodies and civil society.
