Is my company a member?

IIBEC is an individual membership organization. We do not offer company or corporate memberships. Company information is listed on the international member directory when an individual joins.  Memberships cannot be transferred between individuals.

What are Affiliated IIBEC chapters?

IIBEC Affiliated chapters are volunteer-driven localized membership groups. While our overall membership base is divided up by seven geographical regions, those regions are made up of various chapters, each legally registered as a non-profit corporation. IIBEC has 27 Affiliated chapters and 10 branches. If you would like to get involved, we recommend contacting your local chapter for further information. Please note – IIBEC membership is required to join Affiliated IIBEC chapters. Once a member joins IIBEC, he or she is automatically added to both the IIBEC region and Affiliated chapter event lists and rosters. Members are welcome to join any and all Affiliated IIBEC chapters.
