As a member of Ireland's leading representative association for the street arts, circus and spectacle art forms, you are encouraged to use the ISACS logo, and to link to our website where possible. By displaying the ISACS logo on your website, publicity material or headed paper you let funders, fellow arts professionals, local authorities and performers know that you are:
- Subscribing to ISACS ethos of partnership, collaboration and good management practice in the street arts, circus and spectacle sector, for the development and benefit of all.
- Encouraging other organisations to find out about the ISACS Network and become members themselves. More members mean ISACS becomes bigger and stronger and even better equipped to represent the sector to government and funding bodies.

Individual Members, Trial Members and Member Organisations also elect the Board of Directors. The voting system applied will equal one vote per current paid membership. The Board of Directors will maintain a current register of Members of the Company. Only Members whose name is included on the register will be entitled to attend and vote at the AGM and any EGM’s.
