2021 IESMA Training Summit Update

After a very long year dealing with the response to COVID-19, we are happy to announce that in September of 2021 we will be holding a modified IESMA Training Summit. In March, we put out a survey to gauge the interest of members on whether they would attend an in-person summit at no cost to members in good standing. The response to the survey was an overwhelming "Yes!" from the members who responded.

We are currently working on the details of the summit and will have more to share soon. Check the "Training Summit" tab for updates regarding registration and the agenda.

If you or someone you know is interested in speaking at the summit please submit a speaker proposal using the link under the "Training Summit" tab of the website.
