Greater Opportunities with IAM's Virtual Meeting

IAM has received a number of questions about this year's online meeting and so we can all see the opportunities provided by the Swapcard system we chose.

We know this year's Annual Meeting is different, but because of a new lower price point, more attendees than ever before will be able to take part, which means that exhibitors could see more value, especially with the ability to better quantify success and lead-gathering.

 

This meeting has never been more affordable or more valuable. Watch the videos above and .

USTC J9 Peak Season Call (6 Aug)

Before getting into details on this week’s Peak Season call, IAM received an email from the USTC J9 Director, Rick Marsh with regard to latest status on Sec 889 of the NDAA; and TSP certification.

The deadline for sending in certifications was 9 August.
