Meet the Internal Operations TeamThe Internal Operations Team provides support to the association so that they may, in turn, provide direct support to our members. This team oversees the information technology needs of the association for our staff and offices, as well as IT support at all IASB events. They also work to ensure that IASB maintains its fiduciary integrity and responsibility through sound financial practices for accounts receivable and payable; invoicing for events, workshops, and membership dues; payroll and benefits; royalties from IASB Affiliated Programs; and the balancing and auditing of all association accounts. The staff also relies heavily on this team for general office support so that the work of the organization may be conducted in a fluid, timely, and responsible manner that puts the needs of our members first.
