Association for the Improvement of Minorities - Internal Revenue Service
(AIM-IRS), a non-profit organization, (501c3) was the outgrowth of an EEO Seminar in 1969 by former Mid-Atlantic Region IRS employees united toward fostering equal employment opportunities for African Americans and other minorities within the Service.
The purpose of AIM is to educate all minority employees as to their employment opportunities for advancement, to foster equal employment opportunity for everyone within the IRS by any means available, to seek out and call to the attention of the administration discriminatory policies and practices and to cooperate with IRS administration and other employee organizations in taking lawful actions to ensure their removal, and to stand as a united force behind our members in their endeavors at all times, giving counsel and aid.
The Houston Chapter of AIM-IRS was founded in 1988. Since its inception, the Houston Chapter has grown to 181 members. The Sizzling Southwest Region has awarded the Houston Chapter: Newsletter of the Year, Program of the Year and Regional Chapter of the Year.
AIM IRS National has recognized the Houston Chapter as Chapter of the Year and awarded several Houston members the highest recognition of EEO Meritorious Award.
