About Us

The Association of Retirees of the Inter-American Development Bank was created in the late 1970s, and is a non-profit organization, established under the laws of the District of Columbia. Its objectives are to create a link among its members, organize social, fraternal, educational, humanitarian and other activities, including volunteer and recreational opportunities, that further the well-being of its members. Our mandate also includes monitoring the Bank’s activities and policies regarding retirement, income tax and health insurance plans, to promote the rights and interests of the members of the Association and other retirees. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors, chosen from among its members, which is composed of six Executives (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Deputy Secretary and Deputy Treasurer), five Directors resident in the United States and two Directors resident outside the United States. Board members serve two-year terms, with the possibility of one re-election.

The Association is administered by a Board of Directors, elected among its members, which is made up of six Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Deputy Secretary, and Deputy Treasurer) and seven Directors. The Board meets monthly, holds an annual meeting in April, and serves during a period of two years.
