Graded Member Benefit

In 1963, the IPSA National Counsel awarded members who met the criteria of years of service and/or possessed a requisite qualification with post-nominal letters.  Professional societies or educational institutes award post-nominal letters.   

Today, 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, are letters placed after a person's name to 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 provide 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)  


All members receive the AIOP NATIONAL quarterly boutique e-Newsletter “Leading the Way”.
