IAGA Committees
IAGA would not be able to succeed in its annual objectives without the support of its many committees who donate their time and expertise to support our ongoing initiatives. To learn more about each of our Committees, select the individual link below. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please contact Executive Director Kirsten Clark.

IAGA's Audit Committee works with the outside auditors for IAGA, reviews the annual audit, addresses any management issues noted by the auditors and makes recommendations to the Board of Trustees for any changes in policies or procedures related to financial matters or internal controls. The Committee is co-chaired by Scott Schweinfurth and Kelly Gass.

Our Regional Advisory Committees oversee our initiatives within the AmericasEurope and Asia Pac to: 

  • Help grow IAGA’s regional membership by identifying new members for each of our advisory segments (legal, advisory, financial, operational, manufacturing, regulatory)
  • Help secure annual and regional event sponsorships that support our members in the region
