Please ensure at least one executive from your organization is responsible for AABI matters and daily communications.
Please actively participate in AABI events and activities.
AABI Association Members enjoy the privileges to reduce and even exempt from registration fee in AABI back-up events. AABI Incubator Members can also enjoy this privilege if the Association Members share their quota. So, we encourage you to stay attentively and keep active in our community!
