Our organizational affiliates become members of the Consultative Assembly of Organizational Affiliates (CAOA). Through the Chairperson of the CAOA, who is a Board member, affiliate concerns are represented at IAGP Board meetings. Affiliates are invited to send representatives to CAOA meetings and to participate in the CAOA online discussion forum. They are also invited to submit details of their events for the IAGP affiliates events calendar. Below is a list of the current affiliate organizations.
