Call for IIBA Conference from Diana Guest,
the new IIBA President

Dear Colleagues,
I am honored to be the new President of the IIBA.
Rosaria Filoni from Italy is Vice President, Ana Lucia Faria from Brazil is Treasurer and Scott Baum from the US is Chair of the Teaching Committee. Your Board of Trustees met the first week of March and we are off to a good start. We work well together and want to share some of what we have planned. This will happen during the membership meeting at the IIBA conference in Toronto this coming May 24-28. By now you have received the IIBA Newsletter and emails from the conference committee about the keynote speakers and other conference details. Additionally we have a very exciting announcement. Read below.

Diana Guest
IIBA President

On behalf of the IIBA Board of Trustees.



In honor of the 60th anniversary of the founding of our institute, and in an effort to expand the awareness of BA to a new generation of psychotherapists, the IIBA Board of Trustees has decided to waive conference registration fees, except for a US$ 75 administration fee, for all candidates in IIBA affiliated training programs, and all students who are registered in accredited graduate programs in mental health (a student ID will be required). This includes candidates in training programs who have completed the formal training but are completing other requirements for certification. The only condition for granting of the waiver is that the attendee must stay in the designated conference venue, the Chelsea Hotel in Toronto, Canada

If you qualify you must first register with the hotel and get a receipt. Email the receipt to Pilar Llobregat at and she will give you the code so you can register for the conference paying only the $75 administration fee. Don’t forget to also register for the Gala and even one of the pre-conference workshops.

To see more about the conference and to register for the hotel go to and click on “the place”, then “ the venue: Chelsea Hotel”, then “ Hotel Booking". It will send you to a page that says they have no rooms. Ignore that message and click on the return to check availability. That will take you to a page where you can get the IIBA room rate in CAD. This is a special rate for the conference. Remember you must email your receipt to Pilar to take advantage of this amazing offer.

Don’t pass on this incredible offer! Book today!
