Strategic Partnerships - Gearing up for GREAT is our Chair, John Cratty's theme.  Little did he know that Strategic was going to be such an important word in his year.  IAMIC is excited to bring you a virtual convention this year, while we will miss seeing your sweet face, we know that the safety of our members must come first.      

While the convention is coming to you in a new format, our high-quality education is the same.  Each class brings value to your Mutual as the knowledge gained will help you make better decisions when working for your Mutual.

The registrations are broken down based on what you would like to attend.  We are also offering a "MUTUAL PASS", one low rate for your entire office and directors.  Perhaps you have a director who has never been able to physically attend the convention that will be able to join us virtually and find out what the training can do for their roles in your Mutual.  Invite them to your office and share the screen as a group.
