Dear members,

We would like to extend many thanks to everyone who joined us in Yokahama, Japan to attend the our 4th General Assembly from September 25-28. IBA would not be what it is without the support from all of its members.

An official report detailing the 4th General Assembly and the results of the event will be made available for members in the near future.

As IBA continues to grow, the number of member biennials grows with it. The October newsletter provides information about our current and upcoming member biennials, as well as other biennials around the world. Check the list below to see if there are any near you!
