IMPALA has nearly 6,000 members including top independents and national associations of independent companies across Europe. All members of national associations are automatically members of IMPALA. This can also allow them to maximise their Merlin membership as the independents’ digital rights agency offers a discount to IMPALA members and members of IMPALA’s member associations at national level. National associations who are members of IMPALA can select one of their members for free membership of IMPALA for two years, during which they also join the board.
This is part of IMPALA’s new membership programme and board diversity initiative
launched in September 2021. Below are the national associations who are members of IMPALA listed alphabetically. If you are an association and interested in joining, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. (click here to see companies who are direct members).
