Home Virtual Networking


At the IAPE we're fully committed to redefining the concept of online networking. We wholeheartedly believe the majority of business networking will take place online or virtually in the coming years, with the knock on effects of Covid-19 pandemic only serving to accelerate this paradigm shift. Furthermore, the advent of online networking provides our platform with unprecedented geographic reach, allowing our members to build connections and expand their network in a truly global fashion, a major competitive advantage to in-person networking. We've invested heavily to provide our members with a cutting edge online networking platform designed to help achieve their professional objectives.

Our Values

The IAPE was founded on a set of principles which form the pillars on which our members interact, conduct themselves, and network on our platform.

We are confident in the value we provide, but want you to make a professional evaluation and join with peace of mind.

Once your application is approved, you may enroll you in any of the aforementioned membership options.
Great question! We have 2 tiers of membership, each suitable for a range of professionals and dependent upon your objectives. For those just starting out in their careers or for prospective members who want to get a better idea of what we're all about, we recommend the Gold membership. For established professionals, executives, and business owners, we highly recommend the Platinum membership as it provides the most benefit and represents the best value.

You can also manage your membership renewal through your online account.
Of course! If you enrolled with the Gold membership you can upgrade to the Platinum membership by simply paying the balance of the dues anytime within your first month of membership. We do recommend that all members who are ready to make the professional investment enroll as a Platinum member as membership pricing is susceptible to increase based on demand and the economic climate.
We’re sorry to hear you want to cancel your membership. Member satisfaction is our #1 priority. All tiers of IAPE membership may be canceled and fully refunded within the first 30 calendar day of your enrollment. All members wishing to cancel their membership after the 30 day grace period are subject to the organization's approval and may be subject to processing fees if approved. If you have any billing related questions, please contact our support team today.
In order to provide the highest level of service for our members, we do charge a nominal fee for our memberships. Unfortunately we do not offer a trial or free membership. All approved candidates are entitled to a complimentary listing in our membership directory.
No – all tiers of membership include unlimited access to your profile and the network for the duration specified in your membership tier. There is no cap on how many connections you can have, however all members must abide by our “reasonable use” policy which prohibits members from spamming other members or engaging in other sort of nefarious activity on platform.
We’re sorry to hear that your application was not approved. While we make all efforts to approve applications, in some circumstances we may decline to approve candidates based on a variety of factors. If this occurs, you will receive follow up information from our team on how to re-apply and the reasons for disapproval.
