Organization of IAARC

IAARC is a not-for-profit-organization (NPO) that uses its membership dues to develop services for, and facilitate and maintain communication between its members. IAARC is managed by its board whose directors and presidency continually change. The dynamic nature of the Association ensures that fresh ideas are brought into the organization whilst benefiting from the experience of others.

The organizational structure of IAARC is:

The Board of Directors (BOD) meets annually during the ISARC symposium and has some virtual meetings throughout the remainder of the year. The members of IAARC’s executive board are the President, the Vice-Presidents, the Past President and the General Secretary. Their activities involve: take responsibility for the association; approach new members; initiate and prepare board meetings; create reports for the annual BOD-meeting, i.e. membership status, financial statement and the budget for the coming years. The constitution of IAARC can be found here.
