IASL Procedures & Guidelines (Handbook of Organization)

Procedures: Conferences


The venue for the conference shall be approved by the Executive Committee with due regard to the opportunity of meeting in as many regions of the world community as possible. The supporting resources of local associations shall be a consideration in accepting any invitation to host or sponsor a conference.


Themes shall be approved by the Executive Committee when considering invitations to host or sponsor a conference.


The conference should be scheduled to enable as many participants as possible from the host region


It is not intended that the conference should be subsidized by IASL. Financial assistance in the form of a loan will be advanced for preliminary planning. The Conference Planning and Management Committee typically bears the cost of one night's accommodation for the Executive Committee and the registration and accommodation of the Executive Secretary.
The conference chair is provided with a three year complimentary membership in IASL.
