Chance to chime in on IGMA/AAMA merger at Summer Conference

July 3, 2018  By Patrick Flannery

The upcoming IGMA Summer Conference will feature a morning breakfast session for members to discuss the future of the organization with the board of directors. IGMA recently announced its intent to merge with AAMA in the next two years, and this session will give members an opportunity to discuss what that means, the benefits and pitfalls of such a merge, and more. Attendees are encouraged to bring their questions and thoughts about the future for this session.

And remember, the hotel cutoff date is tomorrow, which means rates will likely shoot up faster than a firecracker after tomorrow. Guarantee your rates by registering for the conference and making your hotel reservations. You will be glad you did!
