Affiliate Recognition Program

Affiliate Recognition Program


The Affiliate Recognition Program was designed for Affiliates that reached important milestones or contributed to the growth of the profession at the local, regional, or global level.

We understand that a large portion of The IIA’s global network of Affiliates operates with volunteers and limited resources, so it was very important to the Institute Relations Committee (IRC) to create a program that:

  • Recognizes Affiliates for their successful efforts.
  • Encourages Affiliates to strive and continue to grow and enhance their performance.
  • Gives Affiliates some direction on activities that will help The IIA achieve its strategic objectives.
  • Expands knowledge about Affiliates’ successful activities around the globe.

Recognitions are grouped under two headings: Milestone-based and Activity-based (to be launched in 2022).

Milestone-based Activities
