Background information.

As a nonprofit organization we can neither promote nor endorse our members; however, after working with our attorney, we found a way.


We learned that members can buy advertisement from AIA. This was good news. Thus the Board paid for the needed website programming. Now you can have your own Find an Aromatherapist page on the new AIA website. With this feature you can promote your business and the field of aromatherapy.



Member Events Calendar

As a member of AIA you have the exclusive benefit of having your programs and events posted on the Events Calendar.
