The Vancouver Chapter was chartered on May 17, 1958 with 14 Charter Members. We are one of the largest chapters in the association, and the second largest in Canada:
The Vancouver Chapter prides itself on its professionalism, commitment to quality programs and professional development. The majority of our meetings offer recertification points, which is required every five years.
We were pleased to sponsor the Fraser Valley Chapter, covering the Lower Mainland, which chartered on December 16th, 2009. As President Deborah Gomersall said at the time, "Our first meeting was in October  and from there the response and enthusiasm of administrative professionals in the Fraser Valley was amazing - allowing us to charter a month ahead of schedule. I believe this may be a first, chartering a chapter just after two months of meetings - an incredible accomplishment."

We have a long-standing tradition of participating at the district and division levels of IAAP. A number of Western Canada Division officers, past and present, hail from the Vancouver Chapter. As well, Barb Horton, CAP served as Past International President in 2008-2009.
