IAM Is Unveiling New Membership Categories for All Members

­
­
­

Beginning with the 2023 membership year, your company will need to select one of our revised membership categories. This process will fulfill one phase of IAM’s strategic plan—to restructure membership in support of creating a world-class experience for our members. IAM hosted a webcast on the topic. Watch now!


How Will the New Categories Affect My Company?

IAM’s programs and services—the Annual Meeting & Expo, the Receivable Protection Program, Mobility Exchange, and many more—will all remain the same. The new membership categories will give you more flexibility in choosing which IAM services are right for your company. Instead of your membership cost and benefits being set by your business model, you will be able to select your level of engagement based on which benefits you value most.

Digital Inventory Product Demos

­

IAM hosted a series of digital inventory product demos last week, spurred in part by the mandate issued by US Transcom that all DoD shipments will require digitally prepared inventory lists by May 2023. Based on the strong expression of interest by IAM members, the association provided information that may be useful to the industry related to digital inventory products.

JPPSO NC (KKFA) Job Board Posted on IAM's Website at iamovers.org

­

In coordination with JPPSO NC, we have posted their “job board” for DoD personal property shipments that were not awarded to TSPs via the normal shipment award process; and are therefore now available via the job board. You can find this daily list of shipments online. If you’d rather navigate to it via the IAM home page, you can click on “News & Events” and then select “JPPSO NC Job Board.”

USTRANSCOM Conditions Based Movement Call (10 May)

­

Please see attached notes and slides from today’s (10 May) USTC/Service/JPPSO/Industry call.  Of note, there was some dialogue you can read in the notes on the Gun Safe policy that I had put out previously to this group, and whether TRANSCOM has interim policy on the topic until it is finalized.
