Office
During2013, the IACAofficewaseffectivelymanagedby twovolunteersworkingonedayeach
week, and theoff-site support ofmanyothervolunteers. This contrasts toanoffice thathad the
equivalent of six full-timepaidemployeesuntilMay1, 2012. Thenet result isanefficiently
managedassociation that freesup funds, otherwise invested into staff funds, to reinvest
directly intoprograms thatdirectlybenefit IACAmembers.
