About Us


The Institute of Financial Operations
is a non-profit, membership-based professional association serving the financial operations ecosystem, with a particular focus on the accounts payable discipline. The Institute grew out of the merger of four associations: International Accounts Payable Professionals (IAPP), International Accounts Receivable Professionals (IARP), the National Association of Purchasing and Payables (NAPP), and The Association for Work Process Improvement (TAWPI).

Based in Orlando, FL, with affiliates in the U.S., and Canada, The Institute serves as a global voice, chief advocate, recognized authority, acknowledged leader, and principal educator for people in financial operations. The Institute has a community of nearly 50,000, which includes over 9,000 members and customers, and an additional 41,000 financial operations professionals. The Institute's members have access to benefits and leading-edge resources such as a dynamic content-rich website, educational and networking events, online educational offerings, certification and certificate programs, career resources, and volunteer opportunities.
