Calling All Former and Potential New Institute Members

IOA Info, Public Programs

With the Institute’s launch of Public Programs focused on the communities of Southern California and Baja California as well as our friends across the entire Americas, we are offering opportunities for you to become an Institute supporter receiving exclusive benefits. Your membership in the Institute of the Americas helps underpin both the Institute and its public programming. 

Public Programs consist of the Hemisphere in Transition Webinar Series, the Distinguished Speaker Series, special forums, and arts and cultural events. On an event-by-event basis, programming is offered virtually, in person or in a hybrid format. Whenever possible, we want to encourage and engage people in dialogue and conversation, to give you opportunity to have your voice heard. You can access more information on membership levels and benefits, visiting our website While we are offering some public programming, videotaped sessions, and publications free to the community, members will receive invitations to members-only events as well as advance copies of invitations, videos, and publications. Members interested in serving on the Public Programs Committee will play a role in identifying and evaluating programming ideas and opportunities.
