During Friday’s in-person and virtual online business session, IAPMO CEO GP Russ Chaney will deliver his final “State of IAPMO” CEO report as he brings to a close 25 years at the association’s helm. Chaney will retire at the year’s end; COO David Viola has been named as Chaney’s successor.

The $150 full-week registration fee covers online access to the complete weeklong program. (A $40 keynote/business session only registration, including voting privileges for members in good standing, is available in addition to other single- and multi-day options.)
