The Honorary Board of Standards for IABFM encourages local members to set up chapters and will support the local chapter with logistical and financial support wherever possible. It only takes a few members to get started and this is a great way to network and help the IABFM community to stay active and informed.
So how do you go about establishing a local chapter? Here are the steps
The local chapter simply organizes sponsorship and coordination of membership networking events in your location. The IABFM community is the life-blood of the IABFM and as such, local chapters play a vital role in the IABFM's ongoing success.
A: Typically events are hosted in a formal location like a 5-star hotel conference room or training centre, along with drinks or snacks provided for the members. You can charge a nominal entry fee for the event, but the room rental cost should be covered by the sponsor.
The sponsor will have the option of showing their logo at the event and the IABFM may provide advertising/marketing support depending on the size of the venue, including via the global websites.
A: This is open to any members in the local IABFM area through petition and approval, but these should be selected by the members in the local chapter. The time required to organize a local IABFM chapter is minimal and you should not expect to spend more than a few hours a week.
Local chapter officers can join the IABFM quarterly chapter administration conference call with the international team to discuss the needs of the membership. Sanctioned local chapter officers may also elect to have their details listed on the IABFM website.
