On The Move
November 2016

Special Thanks to IAM-YP On the Move Sponsor:

Welcome to all new YP members
Welcome to all of the new IAM Young Professional (IAM-YP) members who joined just prior to or at the Annual Meeting! Each year, the group receives an injection of enthusiasm and energy from its new members and we want to encourage you to get involved with the IAM-YP. If you have not done so already, please fill out the IAM-YP Annual Meeting survey to provide your input on the group and let us know if you are interested in participating on a committee. 

If you have not done so already make sure to join the IAM-YP community on IAM Connected and the IAM-YP Facebook page. These channels are very valuable to connect with your fellow YPs for business and networking.

Please contact Margaret Kerr at Margaret.Kerr@IAMovers.org if you have any questions.

IAM Annual Meeting Review
On behalf of the IAM staff and IAM-YP leadership, we want to thank all the YPs that attended this year's meeting in New Orleans. 
New Members' Meeting

The first YP event for the conference was the New Members' Meeting. This meeting was an informal event where new YPs could engage with YP leadership, learn more about the group, and meet other YPs.
Team Building Event

During this year's team building event, YPs competed in a mini Mardi Gras float building. YPs were split into teams to work on Mardi Gras floats each having its own unique theme. The purpose of the event was for YPs to explore their creative side while networking and making new business contacts.
Also, a special thanks to this year's sponsor for the YP team building event, Paxton International
YP Welcome Reception

The YP Welcome Reception was the last event held for the YPs on the first day of the conference. Held at the hotel pool, YPs enjoyed refreshments with light hors d'oeuvres while having the opportunity to catch up and socialize with friends and business associates.
IAM-YP Membership Meeting

The YP membership meeting started with this year's election results. Ms. Catherina Stier from Schenker Deutschland was re-elected to YP Chair and Mr. Elad Gur-Arie was elected to the Vice Chair position. After the election announcements YPs participated in One-to-One Networking powered by IMC World's meeting technology. Through this, YPs were able to pre-schedule meetings with one another using the IMC World scheduler.
YP Social Mixer

This year's YP social mixer was the largest and most successful to date. Over 300 tickets were sold, not including YPs that received free entry into the event. The social mixer was held in the warehouse district at the Republic. This is the second year that the event has been open to the entire membership.
We want to thank NEDRAC and The EuroGroup International Movers Ltd. for sponsoring this year's social mixer.
