Post-Nominal Letters Recognition
Graded Member Benefit
AIOP’s National Board awards members with post-nominal letters for each graded membership level. The abbreviation displayed after a person’s name denotes the level of membership including years of service and/or a qualification which the member has achieved.
"Post-nominal letters, also called post-nominal initials, post-nominal titles or designatory letters, indicate that the individual holds a position, academic degree, accreditation, office, military decoration, or honour, or is a member of a religious institution or fraternity".
AIOP's post-nominal letters boost your professional profile and provides national recognition of your office/administrative skills.
There are three graded membership post-nominal letters options, providing professional recognition: FAIOP (Fellow), Associate Fellow (AFAIOP) Member (MAIOP).
