The Foundation of IAAP has undertaken many steps over the past few years to provide a strong infrastructure to be a supporting organization for those working in the office and administrative profession as well as for IAAP. Doing so will support the IAAP’s vision to ensure opportunities to connect, learn, lead and grow.

Following the 2013 business session held in Anaheim, CA, the boards of the IAAP and The Foundation of IAAP approved a change in legal counsel.  As a result, management requested that the new legal counsel undertake a review of the organizational structure, governance, operations, policies and practices of IAAP and The Foundation of IAAP to assess their legal health and diagnose each organization’s legal and best practices strengths and weaknesses, and propose any necessary or advisable corrective or preventative measures.

The audit provided the Board of Regents notice that The Foundation was not operating within its Articles of Incorporation. Thus, the Board of Regents voted to suspend elections and appointments for the 2014-15 governance year. Fortunately, those individuals currently serving on the board have agreed to continue their volunteer service for another year. This decision will provide the regents with the continuity to further develop its emerging strategic plan, goals and objectives, and program support during the year ahead. 

The regents will also use this time to examine its current election and nomination processes to insure that The Foundation is utilizing best practices in carrying out its governance responsibilities.

We appreciate all of your ongoing support of The Foundation and its mission.
