AIBS can achieve success in its federation activities with its members only with the active participation and inclusion of the AIBS Council in AIBS affairs. It's a two-way street—please let us know what we could be doing better!
We encourage the participation of presidents and executive directors, as well as their designated representatives, in Council activities. For a directory of AIBS Council members and other membership information, see our Member Society and Organization Directory — corrections and updates are always appreciated.
