IABR Organisation

The New Organisation

During the 10th anniversary conference in Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna in October 2015, the IABR board of directors held a meeting to fill the vacancy of chairperson after the sudden and untimely death in January 2015 of the founding chairman, Anton Amann. The future of IABR was discussed, both in person and in subsequent email exchanges and video meetings, and an organizational structure was established to manage and steer the association.
