It's a New Year and IASB has a New Look!

It's a New Year and IASB has a New Look!
To help ring in the new year, IASB is pleased to announce the soft launch of our new (and improved) website ( 
We have upgraded the site design and platform to a fully integrated membership management system with increased functionality.  The website is designed to be easy-to-use, accessible and best of all, everything is now in one place.  Some of the new features include:
  • Home Page:
    At a glance, see upcoming events, featured members and speakers, upcoming events, recent industry news and quick links to get to where you want to go with one click.  We have also included curated content specific to our audiences - look for the Blue Tabs at the top of the page to go directly to the content most relevant to you.
  • Video Stories: 
    Check out the featured video spot on the home page.  This space will change bi-weekly and will include Member Moments with a new member featured each time and Speaker Spotlight, highlighting notable speakers. For more information on being featured and telling your story, send an email to
  • Members Only: 
    The members only sections of the website have been expanded and enhanced. To access these pages, click on the login button. In most cases, your login is the primary email associated with your record. If you do not know your password, click on the Forgot Password link and follow the instructions - if you need assistance, IASB staff is available via phone or email.
  • Convention: 
    Registration for the Annual IASB Convention is now open!  If you are a member, please login first.  You will be able to register multiple people from your company and take advantage of the members only discount and group rates.  
  • Searches & Member Directory: 
    A sitewide search is now possible and the search* feature on the Membership Directory has been enhanced.  Plus you can now have additional contacts* for your company. Beginning in April you will be able to renew your membership online with just a few clicks plus see past payments, download receipt copies and more - all in one place, 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. 
    *The primary contact for each member will be receiving a separate email in the next few days with information on how to update your member profile with the new fields.  IASB staff is available to assist with setting up new contacts.

We will officially launch the site at the IASB Convention in April but between now and then, we are looking for your feedback so take a peek and tell us what you think!  We are working on an enhanced Speaker Directory which will launch later this year.
