The Association for International Business (AIB) Inc., founded in 1997, has grown into a powerful nonprofit organization offering tons of help to people in the international trade arena.

Among other things, AIB helps its members conduct global business more efficiently, get answers to tough questions, share information and resources, and find new markets.
