Help those impacted by Hurricane Florence

To jump start the effort, IAAO will donate $1,000 to the campaign, which will be distributed to affected members in the area.
IAAO will accept cash, checks, or credit card donations. To make a donation, stop by the IAAO Registration Desk at Conference.

Support the Conference Book Drive!
Attendees at the 2018 Annual Conference are encouraged to participate in the conference charitable activity by getting involved in the Book Drive.Book_Drive.png

The ability to read and write is one of the cornerstones of our daily lives and has a powerful impact on one’s financial achievement. President Dorothy Jacks has chosen to focus on literacy for the 2018 Annual Conference charitable activity by hosting a Book Drive through a partnership with Reading Partners.
There are three ways to get involved. Attendees can bring gently used books to the conference (see the recommended book list on the conference mobile app or IAAO website); buy new books from the onsite book store at the conference, or make a financial donation at the conference.

Reading Partners is a successful organization, and IAAO would like to contribute to its future success.
