Crowdfund a Scholarship

YP Annual Meeting Events

Please check the Tentative Schedule at a Glance so you can start making arrangements for meetings and to attend IAM-YP events.

Annual Meeting Social Mixer

Spread the word that ANY IAM MEMBER can join the Social Mixer from 11pm onward. All they need to do is buy a ticket when they register for the Annual Meeting.

The Social Mixer will be at the The Tipsy Crow in San Diego's historic Gaslamp District.

Since this is part of your YP Membership, it is not necessary for YPs to purchase a ticket to attend this event.

Mentor Match Member Spotlight

Elad Gur-Arie has dedicated years of service to the IAM YP program and has recently joined the Mentor Match program. He believes Mentor Match is an excellent networking platform.

Elad currently sits on the YP Management Board (YPMB) representing the Middle East and Near Asia region. He has been working for at Transclal Fine Arts Ltd. (TFA) in Israel for almost 4 years, but has been in the industry for 12 years.

"I love my industry and enjoy each and every minute of it, not to mention the great friends I made along that time," Elad said.

He believes Mentor Match is an excellent networking platform that offers a great deal of benefits and can open doors to get to know new friends in the industry.

IAM's Mentor Match program is taking flight and On the Move will profile individuals who have established a mentoring relationship. For more information on the program, get started by enrolling as a Mentor or a Protégé.
