Volunteer Engagement With Longer-term Commitments

The primary function of IIA volunteer engagement is to provide subject matter expertise, advice, and counsel on an ongoing basis in different aspects of organizational operations. The following opportunities are sourced through the annual nominations process:   

Advisory Councils

Advisory Councils exist to provide a strategic link between the Board and IIA staff initiatives in support of the strategic plan. They are designed to drive alignment between implementation of strategies and the Global or NA Board.


Committee terms are usually for 2-3 years, with one-third of the members’ terms expiring each year. Members may be replaced annually if not effectively contributing to volunteer activities and should not serve more than two consecutive terms on the same council or committee. Members are expected to have funding for travel and expenses for planned in-person meetings.
