The International Association’s organizational structure consists of four levels spanning the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and other countries. Each level conducts meetings, elects officers, appoints committees and provides numerous opportunities for involvement and leadership.
International: The Corporate center is in Atlanta, Georgia; annual National conventions are held each year in a different part of the country.
Regional: There are 9 geographic regions – we are members of Region I which encompasses all of New England, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania; annual Regional conferences are held in a different state each year.
Council: (formerly state level): Rhode Island Council – our October monthly meeting is normally designated as the “Council” meeting.
Local: Split by local areas within the state – since we are “Little Rhody”, we only have one local association.
Locally, we offer Continuing Education credits, monthly meetings with speakers to educate you personally and professionally, a community service project and even some enjoyable non-industry related functions. Feel free to peruse our website and get acquainted with what all we’re all about.
