The IAB was formed in 1989 to promote and advance
the Persian culture, traditions, and arts; to assist fellow Iranians in need; to create a
deeper sense of community among Iranians, and to encourage better relations between the
Iranian community and groups with other cultural backgrounds.
The IAB is not connected to any religious or
political organization. The governing council is responsible for all administrative
decisions. Council members are elected yearly by IAB
members in accordance to the by-laws of IAB (a copy of the
by-laws may be requested directly from IAB). Council members donate their time and
services generously, and are not financially compensated.
