IAPMO Membership is a Journey of Relationships and Rewards

David Gans
Immediate Past President at IAPMO | Website

Thank you all for participating with IAPMO and for reading this and the many articles we produce for our members quarterly. Your subscription to Official magazine is one of the member benefits we’ve been proud to share since 1958.

Our membership in IAPMO is a unique journey of participating, receiving, and giving. We have an amazing passion for our industry, and it is greatly enhanced by joining together in local and national membership activities that allow us to share the knowledge, expertise, and importance of our professional careers.

Bearing that in mind, it’s time to start getting excited for all of us to finally meet in person at this year’s annual conference in Charlotte, N.C.!
While in the Queen City, we will participate in educational seminars led by some of the best instructors in our industry and in events that are fun, engaging and add immense value to membership. The Conference Planning and Special Projects Committee has been hard at work preparing to make it a great experience and I encourage you to bring a companion. Numerous other committees are meeting/
volunteering to make our first in-person conference since 2019 a memorable one.

I hope to see you there.

One of the key moments at any IAPMO conference is when we recognize the cream of the crop among our members and industry partners with awards for  their endeavors to increase the accuracy, efficacy and excellence of our organization and industry. This year, we have opened nominations for our annual awards to all IAPMO members. We emailed all of you with an invitation to nominate

those fellow members, industry legends and indispensable partners you believe deserve special recognition for their contributions to our mission’s success. All awards information can be found at our website, so start thinking about who you believe is award worthy!


Thank you all for making IAPMO what a success it is today and tomorrow.
