Membership in the Independent Business Owners Association International is automatic. If you are an IBO in the North American Sales and Marketing Plan you are a member of the IBOA International upon registering. A small part of your registration fee goes to fund the IBOA International and provides your membership.
Once you have achieved the level of Platinum you automatically become a voting member of the Association which allows you the opportunity to vote for IBOA International Board Members.
Your membership is beneficial because the IBOA International is your voice to the leaders of the business and Amway. Leading the Board of Directors is the Executive Committee, which establishes goals and objectives for the four committees that focus on different facets of the business: Awards & Recognition, Business Operations, Legal & Ethics and the Marketing Advisory Committee (an ad hoc committee which works in conjunction with the Business Operations Committee and reports to the Executive Committee).
