IBA Regional Governors oversee regional educational events, help support members in their regions, host the IBA National Conference, and provide IBA Headquarters with input and feedback about IBA’s policies and programs. All IBA’s Regional Governors hold the CBA designation. Local chapters are active in several states and metropolitan areas providing members with networking and educational opportunities.
