At the heart of IPS activities are our Monthly Meetings, which feature a guest speaker, social intermission with refreshments, and Photo Competitions. The guest speaker evaluates, comments on, and selects the winning images. Monthly winners are included in the IPS Annual Exhibit in May.

Although competitions are restricted to members only, the meetings are open to all World Bank and IMF staff and families.

Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of the month (with a break in the summer).

Other IPS activities include photography classes and workshops, field trips, learning luncheons, and photo walks.
