Master Board Members receive special recognition at IASB Fall Division Meetings. Points are cumulative and individuals are recognized as they reach each level:

Level I: 60-129 points
Level II: 130-199 points
Master Board Member: 200 points
Master Board Member maintenance occurs by earning 40 additional points each year

Points earned between July 1 and June 30 apply to recognition given at Fall Division Meetings.

Master Board Member points are automatically tracked through the IASB event registration process.

Board members can view their Master Board Member history and recognition records by selecting “Education and Recognition” from their member profile. Members who wish to “Opt In/Out” of the program may also do so online.
