Kelly has made a significant contribution to the IAB over a period of 15 years interspersed by a couple of breaks. Her dedication and commitment over the years has greatly assisted the IAB to maintain its status as a professional body and also as a supervisor under the Money Laundering Regulations, supporting thousands of professional members around the world. Until very recently she was a staff member and will be greatly missed in her role as Membership and Compliance Officer.
