Here are a few of the common ones that we get, along with answers to the questions. We will add to this list when we get more FAQs. Contact us if any of your questions are not answered here.

How can I become a member of IAACD?

Membership in IAACD is not for individuals, but is restricted to Academies that meet membership criteria. By being a member one of the Alliance Academies the IAACD becomes accessible to you, and you can then engage in and support the work of IAACD.

I want to be involved in one of the committees of the Academy. How do I do this?

Individual academies recommend their members for participation on committees. You should contact your academy and indicate your interest in participating. Committee membership will turn over on a regular basis and the IAACD will be looking for dedicated committee members.

Can I belong to more than one Academy and is there benefit in terms of reduced registration fees in other Academies if my Academy is part of IAACD?

Yes, you can belong to more than one Academy and membership is governed by the individual academies. At this time, we are reviewing the “mutual benefit” opportunities that come with IAACD membership. More information is to come!


We are encourage you to help us grow.

Can I donate funds to the IAACD to support the work of IAACD?

For sure. We are a registered NGO within the US and welcome financial contributions to advance the work of the IAACD. At this time, donations can be made through your own Academy to be designated to IAACD.

I want to volunteer my services to work in resource-limited settings. Does IAACD support connecting me with those sites that may be a priority for the IAACD?

The IAACD plans to have an online “opportunities” section that will match interests of Academy members to perceived needs. This work is in progress. At this time, we do not have funding available for these initiatives, but over time we hope to have grant funding that would support capacity development.  We will send notices out and post on the website.
