IAPMO Conference


As we navigate our way through what is hopefully the end of a very challenging time for the world, it’s important to remember that IAPMO remains essential to public health and safety at all times, both good and difficult. Out of an abundance of caution and consideration for our members’ health and convenience, IAPMO will again present this year’s annual Education and Business Conference in a virtual format.

With last year’s experience under our belt, I have every confidence this year’s virtual conference will deliver for both our membership individually and for the association to meet its responsibilities toward continued development of the Uniform Codes.

While we will miss the typical conference experiences of exploring a host city, greeting each other with hugs, and sharing evening outings, we are also excited about the accessibility for so many members who under more normal circumstances would not be able to share any of it with us. Using the virtual format, everybody can benefit from attending the education sessions and business meetings and contribute their voice to code development.

I do hope regardless of whether you’re a regular attendee or potential first-timer that you’ll log in and participate because it’s a great way to meet people from all over the country you would perhaps not otherwise have the opportunity. I recommend taking advantage of this unique time in which we can socialize and learn from each other virtually. I do look forward to the times when we are again meeting face-to-face, however let’s not overlook the chance to meet new friends this way.

This organization promotes an appreciation of one another in a special way I don’t believe many other organizations do, and the best way to show it is by being active. I hope to see you in September from all over the country and the world!
