Regional and Specialist Groups
Member firms in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific are organised into regional groupings whose activities are directed by their respective Regional Boards. Each group has delegated responsibility within its respective region for membership recruitment, membership activities and promotional work. Through these groupings, member firms have access to a range of additional activities designed to strengthen cooperation and contact and to promote opportunities for collaborative ventures.
The contacts for each regional group are:
Americas Regional Group
Chairman: Debra Hunter firstname.lastname@example.org
Europe Regional Group
Chairman: Jan Huygens email@example.com
Asia Pacific Regional Group
Chairman: Wayne Price firstname.lastname@example.org
National Accounting Groups
In a number of countries where IAPA is strongly represented, member firms have joined together within National Accounting Groups (NAGs). National Accounting Groups enjoy considerable autonomy within the global structure. They run their own programmes of activity and have delegated responsibility for the recruitment of new member firms.
Member firms within the National Accounting Groups are expected to meet the quality standards required of all other IAPA member firms. For further details about IAPA's National Accounting Groups, follow the links below or contact the nominated Contact Partner:

European Tax and Audit Forums
The forums meet annually to allow interested member firms to discuss tax and audit developments within their respective countries.

The Expatriate Services Group brings together member firms interested in the provision of HR/labour law advice and tax advice on behalf of clients operating across national boundaries. Members interested in becoming involved in this group should contact the CEO.
