What benefit do I have from IPA?
Actually this question is the wrong attitude towards IPA and counters the principles and objectives of IPA. Our answer to this question is: Nothing!!! If you're not willing to give don’t hope that you will receive! And police officers who hope with this attitude to be admitted for membership are not welcome. IPA will not be a cover for the misuse of membership, if they had this in mind, or to be a fairy godmother to their wishes. Example: An older colleague asks with a sarcastic tone, "What's in it for me if I join, you're not going to cheat me like other organizations?"

Answer: Dear colleague, we respect your age but this organization is not for you. You cannot enroll. Already you are wondering what's in it for you, thinking, how you will get for modest fee valuable gifts or to be led by the hand to various IPA events at home and abroad! NO, this organization is not for you... ... and will not be good for any member who is sitting and waiting for someone to invite him to participate in some activities.

IPA is good for active members and if you follow our website and you wonder who these people are who are going to the events.... .....eeee these are people who are active in IPA and who deserve it for their work and contribution. Sorry if this interpretation does not suit somebody ... let's activate!
