About Institutional Memberships

Institutional memberships were created in an effort to broaden the academy’s reach and increase international participation, giving institutions the opportunity to designate AIB memberships and conference registrations to their own faculty members and students. Institutional members are recognized for their support in the AIB Newsletter and here on our website.
