The IAABC Seeks International Diversity

IAABC seeks to expand worldwide, engaging professionals in diverse communities around the globe and through them, supporting ethical training with local clients. However, high USD-based fees pose a barrier to joining for individuals whose local currency is not strong against the dollar and whose local economies do not provide them with the purchasing power to make standard fees feasible.

In order to support international growth into these areas, and to support those potential members IAABC has moved to a tiered fee structure based on World Bank data on income levels.To that end we will be moving forward with the following:
