The Augustus Society Italian American Professionals & Executives Association

WHO WE ARE
The Augustus Society is a d/b/a name for the Italian American Professionals and Executives Association (“IAPEA”). The Italian American Club of Southern Nevada Foundation is also a d/b/a name for the IAEPA. In 2017, the IAPEA became more closely affiliated with the Italian American Club of Southern Nevada (the “IACSN”), by allowing the IACSN to appoint board members to the IAPEA. The close affiliation was the product of the IACSN’s desire to expand its charitable activities in our community and the IAPEA’s need for an infusion of new board members and managers. The mission of the IAPEA remains unchanged, but now, with the help of the IACSN, the IAPEA has a new source of talent and revenue to focus more on its charitable mission. Likewise, the IACSN now has a close association with a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to promote charitable activities in our community.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
