  • IAA associate members are non-voting, non-office holding members of the Association.
  • IAA associate membership applies to an entire firm (unless only an individual is joining). The firm may designate any number employees to receive benefits.
  • IAA associate members can be law firms, accountants, consultants, vendors, state-registered investment advisers, or other persons or entities concerned with the interests of SEC-registered investment advisers. View the list of Service Provider Categories.
