The square mileage that the Great Plains Chapter of IABC covers is more than most, and yet the board and its members goes the distance when it comes to networking, professional development and volunteerism. 

Headquartered in Bismarck, North Dakota the Great Plains chapter of IABC covers North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.
