The International Au Pair Association
IAPA is a global not-for-profit organisation with almost 30 years of history. We currently have more than 150 member organisations in over 40 countries worldwide. We ensure that our member organisations meet strict business and ethical standards, agreeing to abide by the IAPA code of conduct, signifying competence, fair dealing and high integrity.
Since then the association has grown constantly to about 150 members who benefit from IAPA´s services, networking opportunities, quality standards, lobby activities and overall support.
We were very proud to be able to celebrate our 25th anniversary during our conference WETM-IAC in Luxembourg March 16-18, 2019.
We are a founding member of the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation www.wysetc.org
The Aims and Objectives of the Association Are:
The General Assembly
- Vote for their Executive Board
- Stand for Board positions themselves
- Decide on projects and activities (executed together with the Managing Director)
- Vote on membership applications and disaffiliations
The AGM is an opportunity for our members to directly influence the policies, goals and work of IAPA.
The last in-personAGM took place in Luxembourg on March 17, 2019 during our annual conference WETM-IAC.
In October 2020 and 2021 we held our next AGM virtually. 2022 we plan to be able to offer our members an in-person AGM again in March in Malta during WETM-IAC
