About AIA in the United States
AIA opened an office in New York in the summer of 2010 to better reach audiences outside of the European community and foster healthy transatlantic dialogue about ADR. The New York office is run by Eugene Becker, who is passionate about the promotion of ADR and fostering a transatlantic dialogue in the field.
About Eugene Becker: Eugene S. Becker is the senior principal of Becker Law in New York City. He is admitted to practice before various courts in Australia and South Africa, and is licensed in New York under the Judiciary Law as a foreign lawyer.

AIA provides information, training and educational activities to expand the promotion of arbitration and ADR globally by means of securing partnerships with various organizations and parties to get involved in the life of the association.
AIA constantly works to develop partnerships in the international realm and to provide the international community of arbitrators and ADR professionals with continuous exposure to the latest international developments, activities and opportunities in the field. AIA continually encourages the participation and contribution of its members in the pursuit of the association’s goals.
AIA can assist in the introduction of arbitrators and mediators; however it is not an arbitration institute and does not appoint arbitrators.
The AIA also encourages and promotes scholarship and publication, and is a forum for legal discourse. AIA organizes training and educational activities to foster further learning and professional accuracy.
