Whether you’re an aspiring golf pro or picking up a club for the first time, Topgolf is everyone’s game. It’s fun. It’s competitive. And it’s a unique way to network and socialize with clients and colleagues in the industry.

IAM-YPs Take Over the Portal Magazine

This year, the IAM-YP Management Board selected the theme The Challenge of Change: A Community Transformed for the upcoming July/August issue of the Portal magazine, to harmonize with the theme of the Annual Meeting. COVID-19 has affected every aspect of life around the globe, from individual relationships to organizational operations. The most obvious employment shift caused by the pandemic is the shift to office staff working from home. The YPs will discuss topics including innovative solutions their companies have implemented to increase productivity while working from home, the benefits flex time or remote work options, and the positive outcomes achieved.

IAM-YP Happy Hour

A small but enthusiastic group convened for the latest virtual IAM-YP Happy Hour on June 4. Staff member Nicola Collett gave a brief mixology lesson on Buck cocktails like the Moscow Mule. Once everyone had a drink in hand, the conversation turned to how peak season is going, and people's hopes and plans for the Annual Meeting.
