The backbone of the IADP, are it's volunteers, who over the years have contributed enormously, to elevating us to where we are now. But for now we still are an emerging, non profit organization, largely funded by its founders and volunteers. So if you are looking for a high paid cushy job, sorry to disappoint.

With the implementation of our very own INTRANET MANAGEMENT SYSTEM, we collaborate with colleagues worldwide.
