The Irish Internet Association (IIA) is the professional body for those conducting business via the Internet from Ireland. It has been and remains one of the driving forces behind the adoption of the medium.
Established in 1997, the IIA is a non-profit business association. Membership of the association includes suppliers of Internet services and products as well as those using the medium for communication, marketing, and commerce.
IIA membership provides the opportunity to discuss emerging ideas and technologies, make new contacts, heighten profile in the industry and broaden knowledge in all aspects of the Internet. The IIA currently has 500 member companies, over 2,000 individual subscribers and over 6,000 non-member subscribers.
The IIA is directed by a board of 12 industry experts who volunteer their services to the association. In addition there is a staff of three personnel: CEO, Operations Manager and Content Editor.
