You do not have to be an ISA member to obtain advice from the International Songwriters Association. We are happy to talk about anything, and at length too (something to do with being Irish probably!). So if you have a query - just ask!
However, do remember that the ISA. although founded originally in Limerick, Ireland, is not centrally-based. For example, our CEO and Membership Departments both operate from Limerick, but our Contributing Editors are based in the UK, the USA and Canada.
Accordingly, an email query is more likely to get a speedy response than for example a letter or phone-call, either of which may have to be forwarded on to the person best equipped to deal with them.
Contact Us By Email
Email is the most efficient, not to mention the speediest method of contacting the ISA because we provide a continuous email service from 10am to 10pm Monday to Friday, and from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. High Chaperal, Raheen Heights, Limerick City, Ireland
(Of course don't forget, these times are GMT (London time), so do adjust them for your own time zone, which in the case of New York for example, would be from 5am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and from 5am to 1pm Saturday and Sunday).
You do not have to be a member to ask a question or seek advice - we are more than happy to hear from songwriters worldwide.

Visitors To Limerick Limerick City •
Since 2004, we very much regret that we are no longer able to personally welcome visitors to Limerick, nor to make hotel reservations etc for them.PO Box 46 •
However, Limerick is a beautiful city and well worth visiting. For that reason, we still maintain a page titled All About Limerick, which outlines just a few of the area's attractions.
