IAB Canada’s Councils and Committees are an important focus of our structure, and offer unique opportunities for project leadership, knowledge-sharing and networking across various areas of interest or specialization.
Our Committees determine best practices and standards, identify research gaps in various channels, and with approval of the Board of Directors, establish the ongoing priorities for IAB Canada.
If you would like to get involved in an IAB Canada Committee, please contact us, and we’ll add you to the appropriate Committee distribution list and send you upcoming meeting invites.
