Institutional memberships were created in an effort to broaden the academy's reach and increase international participation, giving institutions the opportunity to designate AIB memberships and/or AIB conference registrations to their own faculty members and students. Institutional members are recognized for their support in the AIB Newsletter, the annual AIB conference program, and on the AIB website.

As of January 1, 2017, the AIB Executive Board has approved a tiered membership rate structure. The new structure allows institutions to register designated members to attend any independently held AIB chapter conference and/or the AIB Annual Meeting within the 12-month institutional membership period (each designated member may be registered for a maximum of two conferences).
